David Cross Gets His "Freak" On

tobiasblue.jpg According to Variety, Comedy Central has greenlit "Freak Show," ordering seven episodes of the new animated series centered on a band of freak show performers who moonlight as second-rate superheroes.

The series will premiere late this year or in early 2007. Cross and H. Jon Benjamin ("Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist") will executive produce the series.

"Freak Show" chronicles the misadventures of the Freak Squad -- circus act by day, government-employed do-gooders by night. They battle castoffs of the World-Famous Justice Squad, otherwise known as the most notorious second-rate villains.

"I just want to thank God for giving me this chance to shine and spread his word through 2-D cel animation. I truly believe that this voyage that we are about to embark on will, in the future, make me some money," Cross said.

Cross, who broke us all with his irreverent comedy in "Mr. Show," is a regular on the troubled, yet well-loved series "Arrested Development." He's also made several cameos on "The Colbert Report" as Stephen Colbert's arch-nemesis.

No matter how the new show does in the ratings, I'm sure it'll produce some very "memorable" moments. Anyone remember "Hippieland" from "Mr. Show?" Classic. -- Shannon Nolley, Sci-Fi Fodder
