Martin Short and NBC are partnering up again for a new sitcom that makes Short a game show host. That is one character that Martin should have no problems playing. The show is written, created and stars John Mulaney and is based loosely on Mulaney’s life as a writer. Short will play the boss boss and Mulaney will write jokes for him. All you SNL fans will know Mulaney from his writing on the show.
With two SNL alums already involved, one cannot be surprised that Lorne Michaels will executive produce alongside other SNL executives. With all the comedic talent working on one show, one cannot wait and see what they come up with every week. Don’t forget that Short is an eight time Emmy nominated actor for his work in ‘Damages‘, ‘Merlin‘, ‘The Martin Short Show‘, and others. Looks like its going to be a well rounded show. Plus, one of my favorite recent characters in television was when Short played Uncle Jack on ‘Arrested Development‘.
