HBO Back in Business With 'Flight of the Conchords' Co-Creator
James Bobin inks first-look deal to develop and produce comedy projects for the premium cable network.
HBO is going back into business with Flight of the Conchords co-creator James Bobin.
The multihyphenate has inked a first-look deal with the premium cable network to develop and produce comedy projects through his Honourable Company of Gentlemen Film-Makers shingle.
In addition, frequent Bobin collaborator Paul Roemen has been tapped as vp development at Honourable.
The company already has a pair of half-hour comedy projects in the development stage at HBO: the Bobin-penned academic rivalry Marbury vs. Madison and Permanently Temporary, a female intergenerational project from his actress sister, Joanna Bobin.
Bobin’s relationship with HBO started in 2003 when the helmer brought Sacha Baron Cohen’s Da Ali G Show to the network; he directed both the British and U.S. versions of the series.
With HBO, Bobin also co-created and executive produced the Emmy-nominated Flight of the Conchords. His upcoming projects include Disney’s The Muppets.
