Robin Williams got famous in 1978 playing Mork in ‘Mork and Mindy’, because there were no DVRs back then and he talked so fast that people didn’t have time to realize his “jokes” made no fucking sense. Also there were only three channels, so your entertainment options were to watch Robin Williams spaz in suspenders or get killed by the Hillside Strangler. That was it. Those were your only two choices.
But I digress. Deadline says…
Robin Williams is plotting a return to series television with a comedy written by Emmy winner David E. Kelley. The untitled single-camera comedy is set in the world of advertising and would star Williams as a brilliant ad executive working alongside his daughter.
CBS was first in line to pick this up, because all their sitcoms are shockingly unfunny but popular, just like Robin Williams. It’s a match made in heaven.
