HBO Angling for Comedy From 'Saturday Night Live' Alum Deadline

HBO is in negotiations for a comedy project from a former "Saturday Night Live" regular. Deadline.com reports that the untitled project is co-written by David Spade, who also starred on NBC's “Just Shoot Me."

The project, co-written with Dean Lorey of “The Crazy Ones,” is about a rock 'n' roll manager in Los Angeles named Shane who is trying to stay relevant and signs a Christian boy band called the Five Commandments.

The piece notes, “There is no acting deal in the works with Spade, but the script is written as a starring vehicle for him, with an intention for him to play Shane if the project gets the green light.”
