Video Podcaster Gets X-Rated HBO Deal

Hayden Black, Executive Producer of the video podcast Goodnight Burbank (sample below), is creating a pilot for HBO Online, according to a source close to the project.

“Hayden’s just been greenlit by HBO Online to produce a pilot for a possible new series for their website,” said the source. “The website is launching in Feb, and the pilot is tentatively called Abigail’s X-Rated Teen Vlog. No word yet as to a series, but they’ve commissioned the pilot, which is nearing completion.”

Black is said to be writing, starring and directing it and his production company, Evil Global Corp, is producing.

According to Black, he has zero acting experience, so he wrote himself the Goodnight Burbank role just to see what would happen.

Goodnight Burbank is a fictional 11 O’Clock newscast created, written by and starring Hayden Black, with Shulie Cowen (Reno 911), Jamie Denbo (Happy Hour), Angela Espinosa (Young & The Restless), John Schaffer (The Office), Wendy Rosoff (David Letterman), Eve Savona (French Maid TV), Marypat Farrell (Weeds), Carolyn Lawrence (SpongeBob SquarePants), and Rich Fulcher (The Mighty Boosh).
