(Newser) – Good news for Coen brothers fans: Soon you won't even have to leave your house to get a fix. The Oscar-winning filmmakers are creating an hour-long TV series for Fox, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The single-camera comedy Harve Karbo will center on a Los Angeles private investigator, his deadbeat friends, and the Tinseltown VIPs he frequently crosses paths with.

"Before everyone loses their minds: Joel and Ethan will not be writing the project's script," notes Caroline Bankoff in New York. (Co-creator and Cedar Rapids writer Phil Johnson will handle that.) More interested in Joel and Ethan's next film? Click for more on Llewyn Davis.
