Jon Heder stars in Comedy Central sitcom from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay

Comedy Central has ordered 10 episodes of a show starring Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder and written and produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Chris Henchy. The untitled sitcom stars Heder as an unemployed computer IT specialist who leaves the big city and returns to his small hometown, where he moves back in with his parents and younger brother. “We’ve always been fans of Jon’s,” McKay said in a press release. Heder costarred with Ferrell in 2007’s big-screen Blades of Glory. “This deal gives us a chance to take some big creative swings without the risk of testing and focus grouping the show to death.” The series will debut in 2010.
