For Scofe: Black and Showalter get new show

My buddy Scofe is a massive fan of the show Stella. He keeps trying to get me into it, but frankly, I just don't get it. Still, news is news in the world of nerdy concerns, and these guys fit:

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter are set to film a new pilot for Comedy Central called Michael and Michael Have Issues. They've added Josh Pais to the cast. From the article:

[The show]is a half-hour project with segments addressing issues that the two men have with themselves, each other and the world at large. Pais plays Jim Biederman, the executive producer for the duo's show within a show. The character takes the name from an actual exec producer on the Comedy Central project.

No word on why fellow Stella and The State member David Wain is not a part of this.
