     October 12, 2015


Fans of Bob Odenkirk and David Cross’ Mr. Show might be feeling a sense of deja vu when it comes to their new show, With Bob and David. Stylized as W/ Bob & David, the Netflix original comedy series created by Odenkirk and Cross features the actors starring in a combination of live, in-studio sketches alongside taped segments. It’s the first show of this sort from the duo since their four-season run of Mr. Show with Bob and David aired on HBO in the mid to late 90s.

Now, thanks to this first trailer, selection of images, and Netflix’s obvious good senses of taste and humor, W/ Bob & David is revealing itself to new and old audiences alike. The first season of four, half-hour long episodes will premiere all at once on the streaming network starting November 13th. Until then, enjoy this little tease.

The cast also includes Paul F. Tompkins, Jill Talley, Jay Johnston, John Ennis, Brian Posehn, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Scott Aukerman as well as guest stars Jeffrey Tambor, Keegan-Michael Key, Paget Brewster, Karen Kilgariff and more.
