Key & Peele

If you haven’t been watching “Key & Peele” on Comedy Central, then you are most definitely missing out. These two dudes are constantly turning out some of the most creative sketch comedy on TV right now. If you are a fan of the show and you can’t get enough of these guys, then you are in luck: they just got a movie deal.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele have made the deal with Universal Pictures and are teaming up with Judd Apatow to write a comedy vehicle, the details of which are currently being kept under wraps. The movie will be produced under Apatow Productions with Key and Peele as executive producers. Said Judd Apatow to Deadline, “I love these guys because they are riotously, make-you-sick-because-you-can’t-stop-laughing, funny. I think Key and Peele are capable of making the movie that American desperately needs right now.” Let’s hope he’s right.

The movie deal news comes just a few weeks after Comedy Central picked “Key & Peele” up for a fourth season. Overall, it’s pretty safe to say that this duo is having quite the hot streak.
