"Klown," which has earned comparisons to "Curb Your Enthusiasm," follows two friends, played by comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen as exaggerated version of themselves, as they embark on various daily misadventures and debauched scenarios. The series was produced by Lars von Trier's Zentropa, and the filmmaker (no stranger to provocation himself) wrote an episode for "Klown" entitled "It's A Jungle Down There."
"No subject is too taboo for this incredibly hilarious and utterly fearless series," said Drafthouse Films' Creative Director Evan Husney, "and ever since we released the feature 'Klown' last summer, the demand for the original TV series has been high. We couldn't be more excited to drop more of Frank and Casper's bar-raising hilarity on unsuspecting American audiences."
In addition to the American acquisition, Warner Brothers has reportedly tapped "Klown" for an English remake produced by Todd Phillips ("The Hangover") and written by and starring Danny McBride ("Eastbound And Down"). Check out a trailer for "Klown," the series, below.
