jack-blackImage Credit: Brian To/FilmMagic.com“Don’t worry, TV,” promises Jack Black. “Help is on the way!” That’s how the Tropic Thunder star announced his new partnership today with Reveille (The Biggest Loser, The Office) to make TV shows. Black’s production company, Electric Dynamite, has teamed with Reveille to create scripted comedies, as well as animated programs and reality shows for TV and online. “Jack is one of the most talented performers of his generation. This new relationship with Electric Dynamite demonstrates our commitment to expanding our scripted programming slate. Jack has a unique vision, extraordinary talent for comedy,” according to a Reveille statement.

Reveille has four new unscripted shows debuting on the broadcast nets later this year, including Masterchef on Fox, Got to Dance on CBS, and Losing it with Jillian and Breakthrough with Tony Robbins on NBC.

    God no. Jack Black is an idiot. Besides, there’s enough crap on TV already, we don’t need any more.

    • Elizabeth

    I like potatoes, therefore i like Jack Black

    Not many people as talented as Jack Black. It seems like people like to ‘hate’ on those that have been successful for a period of time. Jack is one of the funniest people in movies and is a great musician / singer.

    It will be interesting to see how this turns out. I, for one, will watch whatever comes from this.

  • Dan

    Jack Black is awesome, way to go.

  • Jared

    I am on the fence about this one. Tenacious D was a hilarious show/band, but his movie career has been kinda flunky. Hopefully he taps a bit of his tv roots…

    • DarkSnyder

      King Kong and Tropic Thunder were floppy? You want him to tap his tv roots for tv? Wow! Thanks.
