HBO Signs Deal with Bill Hader
Is Stefan on his way to HBO? It's entirely possible that everyone's favorite NYC club guru will be making an appearance on HBO, now that Bill Hader has signed a series development deal with the premium cable network.
While it is possible that Hader will reprise one or more of his famous SNL
characters, it is far more likely that the series will take things in a completely different direction for the versatile comedian, who left SNL
in 2012 after eight years as a not ready for prime time player. Hader's versatile career includes time writing for SNL
as well as writing for Comedy Central's South Park
. In addition, Hader was one of the breakout stars of this year's Sundance Film Festival, with his film The Skeleton Twins
, in which he stars alongside fellow SNL
alum Kristen Wiig, landing a distribution deal and strong reviews.
There is no additional information regarding the series Hader is set to develop, but considering his background and his ability to fully immerse himself in any role thrown his way, it is incredibly likely to be a success.
