Mr. Show‘s Bob Odenkirk and David Cross are headed to Netflix for a new sketch comedy show that’s not a Mr. Show revival – but sounds a lot like a Mr. Show revival.
Netflix has picked up four 30-minute episodes of With Bob and David. The streaming platform will also show an hourlong “making of” special. No word on when.

Odenkirk and Cross will write, star, and produce the series. Among the show’s other producers are Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, whom you might know as Tim and Eric.
Here’s what Netflix had to say about the show in a release:
“After being dishonorably discharged from the Navy Seals, Bob and David are back serving our country the way they do best, making sketch comedy. Four half-hours of brand new comedy featuring all new characters, all new scenes, and most importantly, all new wigs.”
Yeah, With Bob and David seems likely to tickle the same funny bones as Mr. Show (full title Mr. Show with Bob and David). Mark us down as excited.
