1. Bret McKenzie from Flight Of The Conchords is returning to TV with a new animated comedy.
Not content with starring in the next two Hobbit movies and writing the soundtrack to the Muppets sequel, he’s just inked a deal for a script and pilot presentation for a new grown-up cartoon for Fox.
2. It’s all about NASA!
But this is a “deteriorating, demoralised” NASA. The workplace comed centres on a group of friends working at an obsolete space centre in Boulder, Colorado.
3. The brains behind King Of The Hill are in on it too.
McKenzie is co-writing the project with that show’s veterans Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May.
