Christopher Guest Is Working on a Television Show

Christopher Guest has been mostly inactive since 2006's For Your Consideration but that is about to change. It's being reported that Guest is working with Jim Piddock to create a television show. Television seems like a natural fit for the Guest and his ability to create completely lived-in worlds for his characters. The hope is to have it run commercial-free on a network like HBO or Showtime, or maybe even Netflix.  Entitled Family Tree, the show will be primarily improvised and will about a man, played by Chris O'Dowd, tracking down his real family. They are going to need do a lot of prosthetic eyebrow work on O'Dowd if they expect Eugene Levy to believably play his dad.

    I'm relieved Splitsider is too classy to make a Michael McKean car accident joke.
