Showtime Greenlights Clooney's Fall

George Clooney’s production company will produce a new half-hour comedy for Showtime called The Fall of Bob. The lead character, Bob (obviously), will narrate his life through flashbacks as he propels himself from a building. Morbid stuff. Variety is reporting that Showtime has been busy courting the big names since greenlighting the Steven Spielberg-produced, Diablo Cody-penned United States of Tara.

The channel also just piloted the darkly comedic “The End of Steve,” from Matthew Perry and Peter Tolan .
