Former 'SNL' Writer Does Pilot for Cable Net Deadline.com

A live-action comedy pilot from a former writer for “Saturday Night Live” has been ordered by Adult Swim, Deadline.com reports. The show is "Regal Productions," produced by and starring former "SNL" writer Bob Odenkirk.

Brian Jarvis and Jim Freeman, who will co-star in the pilot with him, also worked with Odenkirk on developing the project, the story says. The comedy focuses on Regal Productions, a video-production company that works out of a strip mall in North Hollywood and produces low-budget infomercials, wedding videos and Internet ads.

Odenkirk recently appeared on "How I Met Your Mother" and "Breaking Bad."
