Jon Heder to Star in Comedy Central Sitcom

Jon Heder Lands a Comedy Central Sitcom

The star of Napoleon Dynamite is coming to Comedy Central — and he might be staying for quite a while. Jon Heder has landed a sitcom deal at the cable channel for a show written and produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy.

The as-yet-untitled sitcom stars Heder as "an out of work computer IT specialist who leaves the big city and returns to his small home town, where he moves back in with his parents and younger brother."

So far, Comedy Central has ordered 10 episodes of the show, but that could be just the beginning: Under the deal, the network could order as many as 90 more episodes if the first season goes well. Ninety episodes? Heder's character may be out of work, but Heder himself could end up with job security for quite a while.

Do you like this move for Heder? Will you check out the show, or do you wish he'd stick to big-screen movie roles?
