Rob Huebel to Star in IFC Comedy Pilot <i>American Storage</i>

Dr. Owen Maestro is downscaling his life a little. Childrens Hospital and Human Giant star Rob Huebel has signed on for the IFC pilot American Storage as a man who lives in a storage unit and could not be happier about it. According to Deadline the pilot is based on a 2006 short film that starred Steve Carell and David Krumholtz, with Huebel and newcomer John Karna taking over the leads for IFC’s television project.

No word yet on if/when American Storage will make it onto TV, but if it lines up with an eventual fifth season of Portlandia (Season 4 premieres Feb. 27), it might just sum up America in 2015 (and make for a great hour of television).
