In honor of their 2020 Mandatory Attendance Tour, kicking off tonight in Sydney, Australia, wonderful weirdos Tim and Eric have announced a new Adult Swim sitcom, the tasty-sounding Beef House, set to premiere later this year.
The show’s synopsis explains:
Beef House is a multi-camera sitcom about five men—Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Ron Auster, Ben Hur, Tennessee Luke—and Eric’s wife Megan, living under one roof [...] Each week Tim, a laid-back rock-and-roll slacker, and his best friend Eric, a high-strung stay-at-home husband, find themselves in the middle of a madcap misadventure that can only be traversed with the help of their fellow Beef Boys.
Judging by the first-look photo above, Megan is played by Jamie-Lynn Sigler, aka Meadow Soprano, which is quite a casting coup. Please write your own “gabagool house” joke—we don’t feel like putting one together but the pieces are all there at your fingertips now. Oh, okay, got it: Beef Boys, meet Gabagool Girl! SWISH.
Like Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and basically everything else Heidecker and Wareheim have done together, Beef House is written and created by the duo, produced by Abso Lutely Productions, and executive produced by Heidecker, Wareheim and Dave Kneebone.
Though it starts off in Australia, the Mandatory Attendance Tour comes to North America later this month and spends the majority of its run there, beginning in San Diego on Jan. 27. Second shows have been added to the tour’s Washington, D.C., New York, Toronto and Los Angeles stops. You can grab tickets here.
