Amended! When I wrote earlier today about HBO's plans to film a one-off special called Talking Funny with Louis CK, Ricky Gervais, Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld, and mentioned Showtime's The Green Room with Paul Provenza, I should also have mentioned a third televised possibility.
That's because Greg Behrendt's pilot, There Might Be Cake, is still in the discussion stages over at IFC. Not yet passed. Not yet ordered.
Behrendt filmed the pilot in February, including live stand-up with Nick Thune, Tig Notaro, Dana Gould and Kurt Braunohler, and an interview with David Cross. Behrendt described his show back then, thisaway: "It's a docu-series of me interviewing my peers about their careers, the new kids they love or fear, and the comics they believe deserved more attention, For the pilot I interviewed my old buddy and former lover David Cross."
So stay tuned.
