Christopher Guest, Mitchell Hurwitz Teaming Up for Pilot

Here's something to snap you out of that post-Oscars funk: "Arrested Development" creator Mitchell Hurwitz and Waiting for Guffman writer/director Christopher Guest are teaming up to make a comedy pilot for ABC.

According to Zap2it, Guest will be directing Hurwitz's adaptation of a British show called "The Thick of It," which — no surprises here — is filmed like a mockumentary.

My inner "Arrested Development" fan is already mourning the show's demise, but I'm going to try to be optimistic for a little while. After all, that other faux-British-documentary-turned-American-sitcom seems to be doing alright for itself, and Guest and Hurwitz rarely disappoint. What do you all think?

I absolutely love Christopher Guest. Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, and A Mighty Wind are all such funny films. Too bad I don't have tv, or I'd tune in for this new show.
