Default Taran Killam In New MTV Sketch Show

After a season on "Wild 'n' Out," Taran Killam has been announced as one of the castmembers on Nick Cannon's new MTV sketch comedy show "Short Circuitz".

From Reuters:
"Nick Cannon Presents: Short Circuitz" has been given an eight-episode order, with the half-hour show set to premiere in first-quarter 2007 as part of the network's "10 Spot" lineup. The series will consist of topical sketches, impersonations, parodies and other comedic elements. It will feature Cannon, who also is the creator/executive producer, along with comedy/improv players Affion Crockett, Eliza Coupe, Leonard Robinson, Taran Killam and Katt Williams.
In other Taran news, the pilot-turned-youtube-phenomenon "Nobody's Watching" has recently launched a new website at www.nobodyswatching.tv. Word has it that if they can generate enough buzz from this site and build a respectable fanbase, NBC will greenlight the series to be made into a television show.

So, basically, this show is just those in-between sketches on Wild n' Out, but now it's the whole show? I really hope not because those skits were terrible, even more so than the actual show. I can't see this working unless they got new writers.
