HBO gets intelligent

HBO, always in search of that next new great show is developing a little sumpin’ sumpin’ with Patton Oswalt and Bradley Cooper.? The duo, who know a thing or two about comedy chops, will be portraying CIA agents as disgruntled civil servants? in the show Intelligence, which is still under development.

The project, created by Michael Patrick Jann, is a workplace comedy about an elite counter-intelligence unit hidden undercover as disgruntled civil servants.

Jann, who recently helmed an episode of HBO’s offbeat comedy series “Flight of the Conchords,” will write “Intelligence” and is on board to direct. He will executive produce alongside Cooper and Oswalt.

Michael Patrick Jann is probably best known for his work on The State. ?

In Other HBO News: Be sure to check out their new mini-series Five Days.? It airs every Tuesday in Oct. at 8 p.m.

In “Five Days”, a beautiful young mother from the family-friendly suburbs outside of London mysteriously disappears, and her children, abandoned in her car, also end up missing. Focusing on the day of the woman’s vanishing and four random days that follow, this new HBO miniseries traces the ripple effects when a family’s life-altering trauma becomes not only a complex police investigation, but ripe fodder for tabloid headlines. As police search for clues over three gut-wrenching months, the woman’s husband and family learn that nobody is quite what they seem.

Sounds cool to us.
