Billy Crystal Back On TV
It looks like FOX-TV is going to be injecting some more humor into its lineup. Billy Crystal will star in the network’s new half-hour series, “The Comedians,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Crystal will play a veteran (Jewish?) comedian forced to work with a younger, edgier comedian on a late-night comedy sketch show. As if Crystal alone weren’t enough to give us faith, the show will be funny. “The Comedians” has some other comedic heavyweights behind it. Producing and writing the series are Larry Charles of “Seinfeld” fame and Ben Wexler from “Community” and “Arrested Development.” Crystal was a regular on “Saturday Night Live” for a season and on the ABC series “Soap.” “The Comedians” is scheduled to air this summer.
