The four-episode comedy from Clement and Conchords’ director Taika Waititi, who have both worked on the film What We Do in the Shadows, has been commissioned by HBO.
“It was supposed to be this year but then we decided to put What We Do in the Shadows out ourselves,” he told the Guardian.
But as Conchord fans began to show enthusiasm -and even a little confusion- Clement set the record straight on Twitter.
“Before this rumour gets out of hand – we are not working on a 4 ep Conchords show for HBO,” he wrote. “I am working on another idea with them though, hence the mix-up.”
No word if Bret McKenzie and Rhys Darby will also be involved.
