We’ve got a 2-fer in the news this morning. Our friends at BifBangPow! are letting us make two big announcements this morning.
The first news is that BifBangPow! have secured a new license- That license is for the hilarious HBO series Eastbound and Down, the comedy from the minds of comedians Will Farrel and Danny McBride. This crude, but very funny show tells the story of burned-out major league baseball pitcher Kenny powers who, years after he turned his back on his hometown, must return to teach phys ed at his old middle school. The series wrapped up its first season last year and is currently in production on its second season, coming soon to HBO.
Jason Lenzi of BifBangPow! said "BifBangPow! is thrilled to welcome the characters from Eastbound and Down to our roster of products and personalities. The characters in Eastbound and Down should feel right at home with many of the other irreverent products from other popular movies and TV shows found in the BBP stable of licenses."
Lenzi adds "We are constantly looking for new licenses and properties that we know BBP fans will enjoy, and Eastbound and Down falls squarely into our wheelhouse."
As for what is up first from BifBangPow! and Eastbound and Down, that leads us into our next announcement:
The SECOND announcement of the morning is:
The first product from the Eastbound and Down license will be the Kenny Powers talking bobble-head! This limited edition of bobble-head of Danny McBride as Kenny in his baseball uniform will be be available in limited quantities at the from the BBP/Entertainment Earth booth at Comic Con 2010.
This is a TALKING bobble-head that will feature 4-5 actual lines of dialog from the first season, and you can be sure that they will be funny and salty! You get all that AND the mullet for no extra charge!
This is the first of two Kenny Powers bobble-heads that BBP has planned. The next one will feature Kenny in his civilian clothes.
