Val Kilmer in 'Ghost Ghirls' -- EXCLUSIVE IMAGE
Think there is no letter “D” in SXSW? Think again. Jack Black and Kyle Gass’ acoustic-metal rockers Tenacious D are set to play a concert in Austin to promote the new Yahoo! Screen web comedy Ghost Ghirls, about a pair of ditzy ghost hunters played by Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci. The concert, and a screening party, will take place on March 13 at Yahoo!’s SXSW venue. The show was co-created by Lund, Blasucci, and series director Jeremy Konner (Funny or Die) and is being co-produced by Black’s Electric Dynamite Productions and Shine America.
“There is no better to unleash the beast that is Ghost Ghirls on an unsuspecting audience,” said Black, in a statement. “Austin knows how to rock, and how how to party, and how to marvel at the supernatural forces that inhabit our world. I’m so proud of this show, and I will be there with bells on, to bask in the glory.”
Ghost Ghirls premieres this summer and features cameos from Black, Jake Johnson, Molly Shannon, Jason Schwartzman, and other notables including, EW can reveal, Val Kilmer.
