TBS to Adapt CollegeHumor Web Series JAKE & AMIR for TV

CollegeHumor's hit web series JAKE & AMIR has been snatched up by TBS. According to Deadline, the network is developing a TV comedy based on the show by comedy team Amir Blumenfeld and Jake Hurwitz, with Ed Helms (The Office) producing.

Read the original report here.

Hurwitz & Blumenfeld will team with Mike Lisbe and Nate Reger to co-write the project. Lisbe and Reger will also act as showrunners. CollegeHumor will produce alongside Hurwitz & Blumenfeld, Helms and Mike Falbo.

The show will follow two friends -- guess who -- as they attempt to use humor to survive in the corporate world.

Hurwitz & Blumenfeld have created and starred in more than 600 JAKE & AMIR shorts since the show began online in 2007. The series won the 2010 Webby Award for best comedy series.
