Seacrest to Produce Hasselhoff Comedy for E!

You have no idea how hard it was to write that headline with a straight face.
But it's true: Ryan Seacrest will be producing "Tales from the Hoff," a scripted comedy for E! focusing on a fictional character who bears a striking resemblance to David Hasselhoff. Unsurprisingly, the character will be played by the Hoff himself.

You're kidding.
Nope. Here's more: The series "will follow the fictional dark and twisted trials and tribulations of an international icon as he navigates Hollywood and the world of dating after divorce." Hm, don't you think "international icon" is overstating the case? Maybe a bit more realistically, Varlety notes that the series "also will explore the fictional icon's attempts to reinvigorate a career steeped in the past."

Insiders say the project "will have a 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' feel.
Well, it certainly does make me squirm ...

How on earth did they get this idea?
Apparently, the project "stemmed from conversations Hasselhoff had with friends about how his life might inspire an interesting TV show." Oh. So that's all it takes.

My tv set will explode from ridiculousness. (By the way, why does it look as though Seacrest's face is being pulled to the right by an invisible hand? Streeetttch!) :nerdgirl:
