Comedy Central Orders 10 Episodes of Hannibal Buress Series UNEMPLOYABLE-UPDATE: No, Not Yet

UPDATE: Comedy Central tells Nerdist that it has only received a pilot from Hannibal Buress and, contrary to Hannibal’s tweet below, has yet to make a decision on whether to order it as a series.

Just hours ago, Hannibal Buress tweeted out this:

 

With this, Comedy Central is reaping the benefits of signing a major deal with Buress a year ago that promised a role on a hit show, Broad City, a new one-hour stand-up special, and a pilot commitment, which now has a greenlight from Comedy Central brass.

If you’ve followed Hannibal for awhile, you might know that he was homeless for a period of his life and, given the title, it would seem logical that Unemployable, at the very least, will be inspired in part by some crazy sh*t that happened to Hannibal around that time. More details should become available soon. Either way, it’s a great news for all, especially if you’ve seen Hannibal crush every second of his role on Broad City, even doing something like mind kegels.
