Yes! Two of my favorite funny people, Reno 911‘s Niecy Nash (pictured) and inexplicable Grammys correspondent Jason Bateman are teaming up for a Fox pilot called The Inn, described as “upstairs/downstairs at a hip New York hotel.” Nash will star; Bateman will direct (!), and Arrested Development mastermind Abraham Higginbotham is writing it. In the immortal word of Deputy Raineesha Williams, “Boom!” Everything about this sounds awesome. I ask though, can J-Bate please consider being “inn” the show as well? For some reason I can’t get the short-lived Golden Girls spinoff The Golden Palace out of my head, and I’m picturing Bateman as Don Cheadle’s manager or Cheech Marin’s wacky chef. WHY? That’s just wrong.
