Dana Carvey’s Untitled Sketch Show Project at Fox Is Dead

Sep 3, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Comedian Dana Carvey’s untitled sketch show project at Fox is dead, reports Joe Adalian at New York Magazine’s Vulture blog.

The show was to pair Carvey with former Fox late-night host Spike Feresten, but Fox was working on the project at the same time it was developing a new sketch comedy produced by Jamie Foxx, the story says. Fox passed on Foxx’s pilot, but has decided to greenlight a new and different sketch comedy project from the "In Living Color" star, the story says.

"Given the spotty track record of network sketch comedies over the past decade — like Kelsey Grammer’s 2005 effort (the cast of which went onto better things), Steve Martin’s The Downer Channel in 2001, or Carvey’s last prime time sketch show — it’s not surprising that Fox didn’t want to roll the dice on two of them at once," Adalian writes.
