My Name is Earl’s Greg Garcia is putting together a new series for CBS entitled Super Clyde. The premise is a bit Earl-esque: a ne’er do well comic nerd with “anxiety issues” decides to use his sizable inheritance “to reward the good hearted.” Its synopsis made no me+ntion of lists or the Crab Man, though.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Clyde is a “well-meaning and sweet yet slightly neurotic guy who never feels like he really fits in.” Late yesterday, news broke that the titular role had been filled by none other than Ron Weasley himself, Rupert Grint. Great choice, right? Grint’s well-versed in all those things and should have no trouble doing each of them on a weekly basis.
My Name is Earl had some of the most memorable characters in modern television; should Clyde also be laced with quirkiness, I can easily see it recapturing the magic of that series. And hey, Earl was once mentioned on Garcia’s Raising Hope, so perhaps a team-up between him and Clyde isn’t out of the question.
Garcia will executive produce & write the series; the pilot will be directed by his frequent collaborator, Mike Fresco.
