Smells like nerd comedian-musician-parodist extraordinaire "Weird Al" Yankovic will be diving into his first feature-length directing gig for the Cartoon Network, where he's already established himself as an animated presence on shows like The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, The Brak Show, and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job. Yankovic broke the news earlier today on his own blog, where he preempted the inevitable media queries about his unnamed project by interviewing himself.
"Have you already written the script?
Yes -- in fact, I'm about to start the third draft. It needs to be fine-tuned a bit more and it hasn't been officially green-lit yet, but it's gotten some very positive buzz at the network.
Is is going to be a sequel to UHF?
Is it going to be a documentary about Winston Churchill?
Is it going to be funny?
Well, that's the intention."
More after the jump.
