Fred Savage Will Direct All of the ‘Garfunkel and Oates’ IFC Show
Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci of the musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates have an IFC show out soon, and according to THR, child star-turned-director Fred Savage has signed on to direct the series. Savage has had tons of experience directing both single and multi-cam comedies, including episodes of Modern Family, Party Down, Happy Endings, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and 2 Broke Girls, not to mention every episode of Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair’s short-lived but beloved NBC series Best Friends Forever. Jonathan Stern (Children’s Hospital, Burning Love) will serve as executive producer with former head SNL writer Dennis McNicholas on as showrunner. Garfunkel and Oates is set to premiere on IFC in late summer.
