So, for the thirty-seven of you who might actually care, the 2005 Ryan Reynolds comedy “Waiting….” is being turned into half-hour television show by Comedy Central.
In case you don’t remember, the original Rob McKittrick film was a sort of minor comedy hit that starred Reynolds, Anna Faris, Justin Long, John Francis Daley, David Koechner, Dane Cook and Andy Milonakis. The film found more of a following when it hit DVD and even spawned a straight-to-DVD sequel cleverly titled “Still Waiting” whose only connective tissue to the original film was Milonakis cashing a paycheck and reprising his role.
Needless to say, don’t expect anybody from either film to appear on the television show. We’re not sure why execs are coming around now to create a TV show based on a movie that wasn’t particularly a groundbreaking success but we’re not network executives so what do we know. We’re sure there are some people out there who can’t wait to find out what happens next at ShenaniganZ.
