Rob Riggle Developing New HBO Series
When Rob emerged into our vision as a cast member on SNL and The Daily Show, he was already on his way to tremendous Hollywood projects. He has been in a truck load of comedies, Talladega Nights, The Other Guys, Childrens Hospital NTSF: SD:SUV, and Human Giant. He had a development deal at CBS that sort of faded away; yet, he guest starred in Gary Unmarried and practically stole the show.
A recent development with Riggle and HBO has bubbled into something exciting, and I believe we are all going to be lucky for it. Rob, in conjunction with comedy partners, Will Farrell, Mark Wahlberg and Adam McKay are signed on to develop a new single camera comedy, yet to be titled, starring Riggle. The series will revolve around the world of 1980's Wall Street, where Riggle's character will be a hard living trader who lives a selfish and dark life. This is going to be a fascinating vehicle for Rob, and I cannot wait to see it on screen.
He's a universal shout of to Rob Riggle. Congratulations on what looks to be a potential success. And thanks for the courage.
