Just after confirming his departure from Saturday Night Live, Andy Samberg has joined BBC Three comedy, Cuckoo. The six-part series from Roughcut Television will shoot this summer to air later this year. In it, Samberg will play Cuckoo, the new husband to an English girl returning home from her post-college gap year. The Inbetweeners‘ Greg Davies and Friends‘ Helen Baxendale play the girl’s parents who reluctantly take in their new son-in-law, despite being horrified by his New Age-y, slacker ways. Cuckoo was created and written by Robin French and Kieron Quirke. It will be executive produced for BBC Three by Chris Sussman and by Ash Atalla and Dan Hine for Roughcut. Ben Taylor is directing.
Sorry but Sacha’s pre-release shtick isn’t getting stale for me – yet. Make sure you watch to the end for the legendary director who makes a cameo…
He cameos once, twice, many times in this SNL Digital Short that truly sucks:
Maybe because it’s 3 AM in Los Angeles but I found this kinda funny…
Well, sort of… Also he calls his return to hosting Saturday Night Live “career-endingly stupid”… Oh c’mon, stupider than starring in the dreadful Jonah Hex?
Taran Killam does a decent sendup of Andy Cohen, whom I once described as The Single Worst Thing Airing On Bravo… Then again, everything on that trash network (except Top Chef) is now a complete embarrassment:
Isn’t she supposed to be in jail instead of at 30 Rock?
