Zach Galifianakis has signed a deal with HBO to produce a new comedy series for the network.
Galifianakis, who already co-stars on HBO's 'Bored to Death' with Ted Danson and Jason Schwartzman, has created (along with Mike Gibbons) a new comedy show starring comedian Brody Stevens to be directed by Jonathan Krisel ('Saturday Night Live,' 'Portlandia').
According to Deadline.com, the new show has already wrapped production.
Deadline describes the new show as a mocumentary starring Stevens as himself, which chronicles one day in the life of the comedian. Galifianakis is expected to guest star on the series.
Galifianakis, a Wilkesboro native who attended NCSU, has had two great guest hosting spots on 'SNL' and stole many scenes in the hit film 'The Hangover.' The sequel, 'The Hangover Part II,' is scheduled for a May 26 release.
