Big Lake -- produced by Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy and their production company, Gary Sanchez' Productions - will be distributed domestically by Debmar-Mercury. The show was sold to Comedy Central based on a model established by Tyler Perry and his comedy, House of Payne. Comedy Central will give Big Lake a ten-episode test run. If it's successful and Comedy Central decides to pick up an additional 90 episodes, Debmar-Mercury will take it to broadcast TV stations as an off-net sitcom targeted to debut in fall 2012.
Wednesday (May 12), Debmar-Mercury's parent company, Lionsgate, said it had secured the show's international distribution rights.
Big Lake stars Chris Gethard -- who replaced Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder - and Saturday Night Live's Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz. Gethard plays a young man who's still managing to dream big dreams while he lives at home and sleeps on his parents' couch. Parnell and Sanz are the childhood friends Gethard schemes with, and they all live in their hometown of Big Lake.
