Guru Nation: Bob Odenkirk & David Cross Reunite for Paramount+ Series

You could show me a video of Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and David Cross (Arrested Development) ordering off a lunch menu and we're there. So we can't wait to see what the Mr. Show duo do when they team up with Bill Odenkirk and Paramount+ for the docu-style comedy Guru Nation. Directed by Jason Woliner (Borat 2), the series finds Bob Odenkirk and Cross playing rival gurus manipulating the minds of their deluded followers. Stemming from Paramount Television Studios, Cross, Bob Odenkirk, Bill Odenkirk, Jason Woliner, Marc Provissiero, Naomi Odenkirk, and Tim Sarkes are set to executive produce.

Speaking with Variety about her upcoming short-form digital series Cooper's Bar for AMC (not connected to BCS) at the beginning of November 2021, Odenkirk's Better Call Saul co-star Rhea Seehorn couldn't (and probably wouldn't) offer much in terms of the show's "deep dark secrets" on either side of the camera (though Schnauz confirmed at the end of October that Episode 610 was being worked on & that the final season will have a mix of new and returning directors). But she did say that co-star Odenkirk was "doing amazing" and as for the scripts that she's been reading? Well, we'll leave it to Seehorn to end things with a ten-ton teasing mic drop: "Whether I'm in scripts or not, I get to read them and I can tell you that this season is insane. It's going to blow people's minds. I can't wait for it to come out." Then later in the month, Tony Dalton (aka Lalo Salamanca) had a tease or two to offer fans. While speaking with Collider to promote his turn in Disney+ & Marvel Studios' Hawkeye as Jack Duquesne, Dalton was asked what he could offer about the final season's scripts. Though much like Seehorn, there wasn't much that Dalton could offer with regards to specifics but he did say that he was "very excited" about what he's read so far. "You have no idea what's going to happen. It's out of control what these guys wrote. Out of control," Dalton teased about the final scripts for Gilligan and Gould's "Breaking Bad" spinoff prequel series.
