The Off-Broadway team behind The Bomb-itty of Errors will be seen on the little screen as MTV signs on for eight episodes of a new half-hour sketch comedy show with the show's creators. The series — still untitled — will launch this Fall according to a show spokesperson.
Pre-production on the series is to "start right away" with four of the writer-performers who brought Shakespeare's A Comedy of Errors with a Hip-Hop twist to Off Broadway. The Bomb-itty of Errors opened at the 45 Bleecker space Dec.12, 1999-June 18, 2000 produced by Daryl Roth, Michael Lynne, Q Brothers, and Hal Luftig. Jordan Allen-Dutton, G.Q., Erik Weiner and J.A.Q., who were the original cast, will take part in the MTV production.
Each episode — produced by MTV's Music Development Department out of Los Angeles — will feature an original comedic music video. Michael Rotenberg and Dave Becky of 3Arts Entertainment will be among the executive producers of the show.
Originally an NYU Theatre Wing project, Bomb-itty was initiated by G.Q. (his stage name), who then collaborated with his brother, J.A.Q. (his stage name), who wrote the score. The remainder of the cast, Jordan-Allen Dutton, Jason Catalano and Erik Weiner were all graduates of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and collaborated on the writing of the show.
