IFC has ordered a full season of the previously reported Garfunkel & Oates series, as well a pilot about a guy who lives in a storage unit. The Garfunkel & Oates show—which sounds something like a cross between Flight Of The Conchords and The Sarah Silverman Program—centers “on the aspirations and misadventures of the female comedy-folk duo” who have “little in common with their peers, and no one but each other to turn to for support and understanding.” That show will air on IFC in 2014.
American Storage, the aforementioned pilot about a guy who lives in a storage unit and his straitlaced employee pal, is based on the film of the same name written by Neighbors’ Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien. Cohen will direct the pilot.
IFC has also signed a new development deal with Scott Aukerman’s Earwolf, which will bring both podcasts and show ideas to the network. The first of these, The Embassy, stars Comedy Bang! Bang! regular James Adomian as multiple characters—including a “controversial hacktivist”—all involved with the U.S. embassy for the fictional country of Costa Verde.
