George Clooney to Produce The Fall of Bob for Showtime

George Clooney Gives Showtime Its Next Dark Comedy

Between Weeds, Californication, and the recently announced Matthew Perry project The End of Steve, Showtime certainly seems to be racking up a warehouse full of dark comedies these days. Today there's news of a new one, and it's got a powerhouse behind it: George Clooney.

Clooney's production company, Smoke House, is developing a half-hour comedy called The Fall of Bob. (Wow, nobody's going to get that confused with The End of Steve, right? Heh.) The show centers on a man, unsurprisingly named Bob, who sees his whole life before his eyes as he jumps from the top of a building. According to Variety, the show will play out in flashbacks, which Bob will narrate as he falls.

Yeah, I'll say that sounds dark. But I'd be curious to see it — especially depending on who's cast as Bob.

Last we heard, Clooney was also producing a potential Showtime drama called Doubting Thomas, about a family of televangelists, though there hasn't been any news on it in a while. This new show just might extend his "hero of pay cable" status a while longer, though. Does The Fall of Bob sound like something you'd check out?
