HBO’s comedy lineup might be getting more musical in the near future. Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome, who comprise the musical-comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates, have signed with HBO to develop a comedy based on their partnership, Variety reports.

Though further details about the content of the show are not yet public, the deal includes an accompanying web component of some kind.

The two are collaborating with Richie Keen, of Important Things with Demetri Martin fame, for the pilot.
