The improv comedy troupe The Birthday Boys have released a new video with group spokesman/executive producer Bob Odenkirk laying out the demands that IFC needs to meet before production can start on their new TV series. We reported last month that the cable network gave the green light for a 10-episode first season, but it seems negotiations haven't exactly been finalized yet. Take a look at some of the hilarious requests that may or may not be met before the series debuts this October.
Executive produced by Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad, Mr. Show with Bob and David) and Ben Stiller (The upcoming The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Zoolander), /shows/the-birthday-boys/The Birthday Boys features the Los Angeles comedy group of the same name (UCB Theatre Los Angeles, Just for Laughs Festival) along with Odenkirk. The comedy group includes Jefferson Dutton, Dave Ferguson, Mike Hanford, Tim Kalpakis, Matt Kowalick, Mike Mitchell and Chris VanArtsdalen - whose combined credits include Parks and Recreation, The Office, Conan, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and Portlandia..
Ben Stiller, Bob Odenkirk, Deborah Liebling, Stuart Cornfeld and Mike Rosenstein of Red Hour will executive produce with Abso Lutely producing the series for IFC. The series is written and co-directed by The Birthday Boys and Bob Odenkirk.
