Judd Apatow Joining Forces with Netflix on New Pee-Wee Herman Movie

This should be a good pairing. One person who loves masturbation jokes and another who became a joke due to masturbation. Judd Apatow and Paul Reubens link up on Pee-wee’s Big Holiday which is confirmed to be broadcast on Netflix. Netflix, the new HBO.

Judd Apatow (Anchorman, Bridesmaids) and Reubens, who worked together to bring the project to fruition, will produce the film. Reubens and Paul Rust (Comedy Bang! Bang!, Arrested Development) wrote the film. John Lee (Broad City, Inside Amy Schumer) makes his feature film directorial debut with production beginning in early 2015.

In Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny.

Just another nail in broadcast cable’s coffin. House of Cards AND Pee-wee’s Big Holiday? The only way any of the broadcast networks come back is if they require full-on nudity in every show.
