Publisher Comments:

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, creators of HBO's classic sketch comedy show Mr. Show, present to you this collection of never-before-seen scripts and ideas that Hollywood couldn't find the gumption to green-light. Simply put...


Since Mr. Show closed up shop, Bob and David have kept busy with many projects — acting in fun, successful, movies and TV shows, directing things, and complaining about stuff that didn't turn out well to anyone who would listen, and even alone, in silence, inside their own heads.

Hollywood Said No! reveals the full-length, never-before-seen scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie (fleshed out with brand-new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell) and Hooray For America!: a satirical power-house indictment of all that you hold dear. This tome also includes a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days and beyond, suitable for performance by church groups that aren't all koo-koo about religion. What you are looking at online, and are about to buy, is chock-full of comic twists, turns, and maybe a few hard truths. We said "maybe," but what we mean was "probably not."

Now, for the first time, take a peek at the scripts that didn't get the go-ahead and ponder a world we can only dream about... and beyond!

Normally I hate reading unproduced movie scripts, I just end up being pissed that they're not real movies I can look at with my eyeballs and listen to with my earballs. However, I will make an exception for Bob & David - I would probably happily read some stuff those two wrote on napkins while high on molly (seriously, think of what Bob would be like on molly). Anyway this book owns, if you, like me, are a big dork about Mr. Show and anything Mr. Show related, get it!

Oh, Bob and Dave. They are the gift(s) that keep on giving and here is the latest present. "Hollywood Said No!" is a must have for any fan of either Bob, Dave, or Bob and Dave. Their show, Mr. Show, was pivotal in the evolution of sketch comedy, but some of us always knew there was so much potential for so much more. If it weren't for those damned censors.
Thanks to "Hollywood Said No!", we finally get to see how right we were, laugh at 'new' scripts, and eventually we can track down that one friend who thought that Mr. Show was as funny as it could be and say, "See! I told you it could have been funnier!"
