Broken Lizard, the creative force behind cult comedy “Super Troopers,” is back at it again, but this time they are teaming up with TBS to pen the script for a new comedy series.

“Who wants a mustache ride?”

If “Super Troopers” does not ring a bell (it really should), how about some of their other cult hits like “Beerfest” and “Club Dread?” Established in 1996 by Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske, the Broken Lizard comedy troupe has been collaborating on the screen-writing, acting and productions of their films and otherwise for almost two decades.

TBS gave Variety.com exclusive confirmation that the team-up is far more real than internet rumor would imply. The project has been dubbed “Quality Time” and is being both developed and produced by Entertainment One Television.  The story is set to revolve around the trails and tribulations of the aged troupe as they trudge further into adulthood.

The show is slated to be written by a bulk of the Broken Lizard troupe themselves, which will include Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske. They will also co-produce the series along with Steven Amato (“License to Operate”).

No details have been released as to an expected premiere date, but that will give us and the internet a chance to remember why we love Broken Lizard’s comedy stylings in the first place.

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path.From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film.Recently, Pooya was approached by FilmFad.com to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at FilmFad.com, he was home.
