HBO has ordered “Family Tree”, written by Christopher Guest and Jim Piddock, and Mr. Guest will direct. It will star Chris O’Dowd, but Christopher Guest will also appear in the show. It’s about a man who looses his job and his girlfriend and sets off to investigate his family’s unusual past. I mentioned that this was going to pilot, but now HBO has ordered several episodes, probably 8. For all my British readers, it will be on BBC Two.
Chris O’Dowd, not for nothing, was the star of the British Sit-Com “The IT Crowd” and got some attention in “Bridesmaids”
