It seems Jack Black can’t get enough ghostbuster-based gags. Last week he filled the shoes of Dan Aykroyd at a live reading of the Ghostbusters script organized by director Jason Reitman at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Now, it has been announced that he’s producing a new web comedy series called Ghost Ghirls that will debut on Yahoo! Screen next spring.
The 12-episode series details the adventures of two ghostbusters played by Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci. Molly Shannon, Jason Schwartzman, and Black himself will all make cameo appearances on the show, which began production in Los Angeles earlier this month. The show was co-created by its two leads and series director Jeremy Konner (Funny or Die) and is being co-produced by Black’s Electric Dynamite Productions and Shine America.
“Ghost Ghirls is the funniest idea for a TV show that we’ve seen since I’ve been in the business,” said Black in a statement. “Jeremy Konner is an electrifying director, and Amanda and Maria are dynamite comedic talents. I’m very proud to be associated with such a powerful project.”
