We reported a few weeks ago that Jon Heder pulled out of a new Comedy Central series, just days before shooting was set to start, and now the series has found Heder's replacement. Variety is reporting that Chris Gethard has stepped in for Heder to star in the series Big Lake.
The series comes from the Gary Sanchez Productions team of Will Ferrell, Chris Henchy and Adam McKay, all of whom had worked with Gethard on their upcoming film The Other Guys, which stars Ferrell, was written by Henchy and McKay and directed by McKay. Comedy Central has already ordered 10 episodes of the new series, with an option to pick up an additional 90 episodes as well.
Gethard will star as a man who continues to chase after his dreams, even though he had to move back in with his parents after losing his job. Horatio Sanz and Chris Parnell also star in the series as friends of Gethard's character, with Sanz portraying an ex-convict and Parnell playing a burned-out teacher.
