What’s funnier than a couple of detectives? Well, I can name quite a few things funnier, but that’s probably because I’m not yet familiar with America’s sexiest billionaire detectives, Ashleigh and Amelia Dangerhole, who will be brought to life on Adult Swim’s new live action detective comedy, Hole to Hole. Watch your back, Archer.
Deadline had the news from Adult Swim when they officially greenlighted a pilot called Hole To Hole. The live-action comedy is co-created and executive produced by South Park alumna Pam Brady and Arden Myrin of MadTV. Myrin will also star in the project, which is being described as a parody of 1980s detective shows. You remember Hart To Hart, don’t you? Well, Google it and stop making me feel old!
Okay, okay, so Hart to Hart starred Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers as The Harts, a wealthy couple who moonlighted as amateur detectives. The show ran from the mid 70s to the mid 80s on ABC. Yes, it was live action, too, of course.
Hole To Hole will follow the “fabulous exploits” of Ashleigh and Amelia Dangerhole. Sounds to me a bit like the Olsen twins, but more “fabulous”. What do you think? Has Adult Swim struck gold?
Funny lady, Myrin has also been seen on What Women Want, Bubble Boy and Evan Almighty, as well as two episodes of Psych. She’s a regular panelist on Chelsea Lately.
We have also heard that Adult Swim has greenlighted Hot Package with Derrick Beckles, Tight Bros from Sam Johnson and Chris Marcil, who have worked on Beavis and Butthead and How I Met Your Mother and Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell. Newsreaders is one series which began this year.
In addition to writing for South Park the animated series, Brady co-wrote the movies South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut and Team America: World Police. She also wrote Hot Rod starring Andy Samberg.
