Smallville‘s Michael Rosenbaum is set to star in a live-action comedy of his own creation, Saved by Zeroes, which will air on the Syfy network. The comedy, about two former actors from a science fiction show that hit rock bottom, was inspired on Rosenbaum’s experience working on Smallville. The actor told The Hollywood Reporter that he sees the series as “Galaxy Quest meets Eastbound & Down.”
