Seth Rogen Brings Adult Filmmaking to Showtime

First he starred in Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno as a twentysomething guy who ventures into the world of amateur pornography, and now Seth Rogen is bringing a very similar story to Showtime in a TV series. Variety awesomely calls it a "porno-based comedy," and Rogen will produce the show with his writing/producing partner Evan Goldberg (Rogen and Goldberg wrote Superbad together, hence the "Seth" and "Evan" characters).

The Showtime series will follow "three twentysomethings who learn about life and love while running a pornography shop."

I really liked Zack and Miri Make a Porno, though I'm curious to see if this kind of storyline is sustainable for a TV show. There's no mention of Rogen starring in the show, so hopefully they can find someone who is equally lovable. Do you think a show like this could work?

I think it could be really funny, and it doesn't sound like they're tracking the movie exactly or anything, just following its success and taking some ideas.

It sounds like Clerks meets Zack and Miri. I hope Kevin Smith isn't too offended that they're jacking all his material...

i didn't really know what to think about this movie it was good, but weird, and kinda raunchy in a way i didn't expect (and i'm okay with raunchy, it just didnt make sense) so i dunno. i love seth but without him acting in it, it would have to be someone very loveable and someone you could get equally attached to.

Oh boy, another story about guys and porno...Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed Zack and Miri but I don't think there needs to be a TV show wiht a similar premise.

well i think that it could be really funny to see. i don't know - there's just something that's kind of 'off' about it all that just might work on Showtime. i'm sure that i'll at least tune in to the first episode if it ever makes it on air. Zach and Miri was very funny!
