T.J. Miller's The Gorburger Show Gobbles Up Pilot Order at HBO

The Gorburger Show at HBO

The Gorburger Show is going mainstream.

The YouTube sensation, created by and starring Silicon Valley‘s T.J. Miller, has received a pilot order at HBO, TVLine has learned.

To those unfamiliar with Gorburger, here’s the crazypants premise: A giant, blue, space monster (voiced by Miller), crashes into earth and immediately invades a Japanese morning show, despite only speaking English. He then uses the remaining, uneaten crew to host and interview the most interesting humans from pop-culture, music, art, technology, and more. (A sample episode has been embedded below for your viewing pleasure.)

Among the guests sitting with G’burgs in the HBO pilot: Office alum Ed Helms, erstwhile Jackass Johnny Knoxville and singer Moby.

Funny or Die is on board as a producer of the half-hour project.
