The Gorburger Show is coming to HBO. The premium cable channel ordered a pilot of Miller’s monster-hosted Funny Or Die anti-talk show. This is HBO’s second recent web series acquisition after greenlighting Vimeo’s High Maintenance for six episodes. Miller has grown at home at HBO on their Emmy-nominated series Silicon Valley.
The Gorburger Show features T.J. Miller in a furry blue monster suit who takes over a Japanese morning talk show. Gorburger interviews celebrities, musicians and cultural icons, all while attempting not to eat and kill them along the way. In the HBO pilot, the audience will finally come to learn more about the fuzzy alien and why he was sent to Planet Earth.
Moby, Ed Helms and Johnny Knoxville are already signed on for the pilot, potentially as guests of Gorburger’s show. Production has begun in LA.
