[02/08/07 - 12:44 AM] Development Update: Thursday, February 8 Updates include: Loads of casting news as leads are set for NBC's "Business Class," "Chuck" and "Journeyman" plus three new comedies get pilot orders from ABC.
DESCRIPTION: (from FOX's press release) A comedy series that combines the fast-paced entertainment of "Laugh-In" and the innovative, sardonic humor of "Monty Python's Flying Circus," KELSEY GRAMMER PRESENTS: THE SKETCH SHOW is packed with laughs every minute literally! The series' signature quick-fire puns, gags and sketches will showcase the comedic talents of five distinctive performers: Kaitlin Olsen, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Paul F. Tompkins, Malcolm Barrett and original UK cast member Lee Mack. The unpredictable and swift-moving sketches sometimes last mere seconds as they deliver popular one-liners. Featuring a remarkable average of 30 vignettes per half hour, THE SKETCH SHOW is a refreshing change - irreverent, smart and silly, and never slow. THE SKETCH SHOW premieres Sunday, March 13 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
