Key and Peele Announce Return to Television After Lengthy One-Month Hiatus
We didn't even have a chance to miss them.
Last month, it seemed like Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele were leaving TV behind for good. They ended the five-season run of their hit Comedy Central show Key & Peele to focus on other things, starting with a couple of feature-length films.
Apparently, though, the ending of Key & Peele was less of a retirement from television and more of a quick nap. Paste reports that the comedic duo are already at work on a new show for FOX about an undercover cop played by Vine celebrity Andrew Bachelor, a.k.a. King Bach.
The new show, which is based on a character from Bachelor’s Vine videos, follows “an undercover cop who grew up on the streets and goes back to his old neighborhood to take down the bad guys who bullied him when they were kids,” according to Deadline. Bachelor has previously appeared in Key & Peele sketches, as well as on The Mindy Project, House of Lies, and Black Jesus.
No other details have surfaced yet, but the project already looks promising. Here’s hoping they make it with a pocket full of funky and a peppermint twist.
