We all love The Great British Bake-Off (or, as it’s referred to in the States, The Great British Baking Show), and considering the competition show’s massive popularity even amongst people who can’t boil water without catching something on fire, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood came up with a mockumentary version. Enter Cook Off!
The Happytime Murders is an R-rated comedic murder mystery that imagines a Los Angeles where humans and Henson-like puppets somehow coexist. It’s been in the works since 2008, with a number of people joining and then leaving as the project foundered. A year ago, Jamie Foxx was attached to star, but he left the project. Now, Melissa McCarthy is leading the project, and her Bridesmaids co-star Maya Rudolph joined up this week to help solve crime.
