Bill Hader is the next Lena Dunham.
OK, perhaps not literally, but he is the latest star being groomed by HBO to create and star in his own series.
Deadline reports that the “Saturday Night Live” alum is developing a new comedy at the pay cable network, though details have not yet been set.
Since leaving “SNL” after eight years, Hader has appeared in indie fare like “They Came Together” and “The Skeleton Twins,” in which he starred with Kristen Wiig.
He’ll also appear in the Amy Schumer-Judd Apatow collaboration “Trainwreck,” as well as three very different animated projects.
There’s Pixar’s anatomical “Inside Out” and the self-explanatory “The Good Dinosaur,” along with R-rated “Sausage Party,” the supermarket-set animated comedy from Seth Rogen.
Aside from “Girls” creator Dunham, who happens to be Apatow’s protégé, HBO has brought on “Daily Show” correspondent John Oliver for his own weekly topical comedy show, proving their commitment to working with comedy auteurs.
Would you watch a Bill Hader TV show, or only if he was playing Stefon for 30 minutes?
