Steve Carell and John Michael Higgins team up to develop USA original series. My head just exploded like that dude from 'Scanners.'

Honestly, just writing the last part of that sentence made me laugh so hard, my head did this.

Little is known about the series as of right now, but if I were USA, I would accept any script from Carell and Higgins, even if it was just a photocopied screenplay of Pod People. (And I’m pumped about this even considering the fact that the two words “insurance investigator” immediately make me fall asleep.)

Could this be anything but awesome, PopWatchers?
