The @DadBoner Comedy Central pilot will be based off of the Twitter feed and the book that came from it. The pilot will be an animated and will focus on the life of the fictional Karl Welzein. Welzein is the persona that comedian Mike Burns created for the @DadBoner account, reports Deadline.
The premise of the show is that Welzein is a man who loves America, booze and fast food. The show has him living with his friend Dave after his wife kicked him out of the house. Welzein believes he can now live life like a “bad boy” with lots of “babes”. Burns will executive produce the show alongside writer Tim Long, Deadline notes.
Netflix (NFLX) and Amazon (AMZN) are also working to release more comedies. Netflix will release BoJack Horseman, a original comedy about a washed up sitcom actor with a horse head, on Agust 22. Amazon is set to release three half-hour comedy pilots later this month.
