First Trailer for Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s New Comedy Central Sitcom BIG LAKE
We just heard that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are developing a new comedy series for HBO with Lizzy Caplan, but on August 17th yet another comedy series from the Anchorman collaborators will debut on Comedy Central with back-to-back episodes. Big Lake is a new half-hour sitcom about a big city banker, played by Chris Gethard (The Other Guys). He loses his job, his father’s nest egg, and retirement fund, then moves home to his parents’ couch in Big Lake, Pennsylvania, where Saturday Night Live alums Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz are already waiting for him. Hit the jump for more details on the new series including an extended trailer for your viewing pleasure.
In the premiere episode, Josh returns to Big Lake and in order to quickly make some money, sets out to get a baseball signed by both Barry Bonds and Marilyn Manson. Right after the series premiere, the second episode keeps the show rolling when Josh’s friend Glenn discovers evidence that Lee Harvey Oswald once lived in his family home and proposes to the mayor that they build a memorial site and amusement park called “Lee Harvey Osworld.” If these are the kind of antics that will keep on coming the rest of the season, this just might be worth checking out on August 17th at 10pm EST on Comedy Central. Decide for yourself after watching the trailer below.
