If you're going to stack the odds in your favor to make sure your show will be incredible, you will follow these steps:
You will get Ben Stiller to produce, direct, and star in it.
You will get Alan Alda to co-star, because he is a legend.
And you will get Jonathan Safran Foer to write it.
If you don't know who JSF is, he wrote the books that Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close are based on!
The comedy pilot is called All Talk, and if all those pieces fall into place, it makes us very very excited to see it! There isn't even much about the plot yet, but it's described as a,“politically, religiously, culturally, intellectually, and sexually irreverent” look at a Jewish family in Washington DC, and Alda/Stiller would play Father/Son.
Plus Alda hasn't been on a series since M*A*S*H, and let's be honest: that was one of the greatest shows of all time. It would be amazing to see him get back in the action!
Doesn't this sound like a dream to U??
