Think you’re going to miss Jon Hamm with the absence of Mad Men? Think again, as Jon Hamm’s comedy Clear History is set to make a big mark on HBO. The project is a film which will broadcast on HBO and stars a great cast including Larry David, Jon Hamm, Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, Eva Mendes and Danny McBride.
The film seems to be serviced greatly by its cast of mostly experienced comedians. The directing seems to be on par with the ensemble cast, as far as knowledge of comedic timing goes. Director Greg Mottola is heading up the production. Mottola spent time on the defunct show Undeclared and comeback kid darling Arrested Development.
Now HBO is giving viewers a first look into Clear History as a teaser trailer has finally arrived online. The film is said to be improvised, which makes sense considering Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Larry David is leading the cast. The film follows David as “a hipster marketing exec who sells all his shares at a start-up over a fight with his boss, only to miss out on billions when the company’s new product — an electric car — becomes a smashing success.”
The teaser, which was debuted on EW, is quite short but it certainly does the job to create tone. If anything it’s worth checking out just to see just how ridiculous Larry David looks. So ridiculous that you’ll just have to take a peek at the trailer and tell us what you think of his eccentric look.
In addition to Clear History, the network seems to be on a comedy kick as it just ordered a full series of Mike Judge’s sitcom on the Silicon Valley. So far the show is untitled, but it stars a promising cast of T.J. Miller, Thomas Middleditch, Lindsey Broad, and Josh Brener. As for that project the only details we’re privy to is that it’s a “high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.”
