Bob Odenkirk's "Let's Do This!" Premieres Exclusively On AdultSwim.com

In Let's Do This! veteran comedy writer, director, producer, and actor Bob Odenkirk gives a back door glimpse into the not-so-glamorous world of low budget filmmaking. The exclusive promo and solo episode launched today on AdultSwim.com.

Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show, Breaking Bad) plays Cal Mackenzie-Goldberg, two-bit movie mogul and head of Cal-Gold Pictures as he leads a collection of crazy, fame-hungry strivers chasing Hollywood dreams. In this exclusive piece, Cal is faced with the challenge of creating a wizard movie for a demanding African warlord and making sure not to get sued for copyright infringement in the process. It's a hilarious behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of a struggling studio in North Hollywood as Cal-Gold produces Harry Podder and the Lost Lebaron.

"I've always loved the hilarious Hollywood strivers reaching for their dreams, looking to triumph against all odds out here in the Hollywood 'Dream Factory'," said Odenkirk. "In Mr. Show, Larry Sanders and other cult hit shows I've played many a funny sleazeball, I've impersonated the great Robert Evans, and it's all been building to this. Cal MacKenzie-Goldberg and his come-from-behind underdog gang of sweet losers somehow find a way to succeed, even if they end up getting paid in yams."

Let's Do This! was created and written by Bob Odenkirk, Jim Freeman and Brian Jarvis, produced by Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment and Williams Street, features Lauren Lapkus, Jerry Minor, and Brian Posehn, and guest stars Natasha Legerro, Paul Rust, John Ennis, Jill Bartlett, Jim Freeman, Brian Jarvis, Andre Hyland, Bruce Green, and Fortune Feimster.
