Wyatt Cenac is best known as being a correspondent for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, as well as writing for King of The Hill. He’s also been in films such as Sleepwalk With Me and Darren Grodsky’s independent film Growing Up (and Other Lies). Working more on his own projects these days, the New York comic wrote and directed his new one-hour standup special on Netflix, Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn. He’s currently traveling for his tour "Wyatt Cenac Live in Brooklyn in ___(insert city name here)___", and I caught up with him to talk to him about his plans for doing more of his own projects. Hint: they involve puppets.

Pretty sure "competent ghost hunters" is an oxymoron of some kind. Anyway, this sounds funny.
NBC has ordered a script for The New Neighbors, "a single-camera comedy project that centers on a family that lives in Palm Springs and is aghast with their new neighbors — a gang [...]
