Original Show: Eastbound and Down
Played By: Will Ferrell
The Pitch: Maybe Will Ferrell is too big for TV, both in the sense that he's a huge star and that it's uncertain whether spending time with his larger-than-life characters week after week would be too much of a good thing. Still, someone needs to find out.
Ferrell's high-rolling car dealer was one of Eastbound & Down's most rollicking rednecks. Now give the world a show chronicling the goings-on at Schaeffer Imports. From publicity stunts to sexual harassment suits, Ferrell's Schaeffer would be an endless source of entertainment. In the meantime, we'll keep his Old Milwaukee commercials on repeat.
