WATCH: Murder She Wrote Plus Golden Girls Plus Humpy Bears? Oh God Yes Please

Get ready for your new Web obsessions now that Two Jasperjohns seems to be done. It’s called Where the Bears Are, and it’s a murder-mystery-comedy that likes to take its pants off and growl.

The show premieres August 1, but the trailer debuted on the bearblogs this week and has elicited “hairballs of laughter.” (Bears: is this actually a saying? Because, you know, ew.)

It’s got a charming screwball quality that feels like a bit of a loving throwback to old-fashioned Hollywood romps. And it also features sexy furry nearly-naked men, which is a different kind of romp altogether.

The show’s written by Rick Copp (The Brady Bunch MovieThe Golden Girls, Dream On) and spans 26 four-minute episodes. Oh, and did we mention an appearance by Jackie Beat? Thank you, Gay Jesus, for answering our prayers.

    Ian Parks is SO effing sexy. He needs to quit his day job and do (shirtless) acting full-time. :)

  • Jack

    This actually looks like it’s gonna be funny. That’s rare.

  • DJ Sean

    Grin and ‘bear’ it! This trailer looks fur-nomenal! Can’t wait for the series to start.

  • Eric

    No queerty, that’s not a saying. But yes, if you sleep with a bear you’re going to get hair in your mouth… at least if you’re doin’ it right ;)

  • Dr. Dick

    All I can say is WOOF.

  • Jeremy

    Ian Park used to work as cameraman for Randy Blue right?

  • Tavdy79

    @Jeremy: If Ian Parks was a cameraman for Randy Blue, he was the wrong side of the camera!

  • Steve

    This looks really funny. Can’t wait to see!

  • Rick Haynes

    @Jack: This may actually good, instead of barely watchable.!

  • scott ny'er

    that was pretty good, actually. I’m impressed.

  • Homomofo

    Isn’t that Josh Stamberg at 1:00?
    Looks like a fun show!

  • Restless Youngin'

    Tuc Watkins — I’m In!

  • Paul

    The acting doesn’t look great, but some good jokes in there.

  • bienclar

    Not exactly impressed by the fact that one of the writers actually co-wrote the Adam Sandler atrocity “Jack and Jill” but the eye-candy is literally my type personified so I think I’ll learn to love it. Bring on the Bears!

  • Kasnar

    @Tyn: If you’re referring to the deliciously furry guy at the beginning of the above video, I can only agree. I’m wondering why I haven’t seen him before. Damn!!!

  • Chuck

    Ian Park, and that cop. *drool*

  • martin

    these men give being gay a really bad name,

  • bienclar

    Just watched the first four episodes. Christ alive it’s bad. It’s not even “so bad it’s good” bad, it’s just awful. The four leads have no sense of timing – at all – and the jokes are stale before they even reach the punchline. Ian Parks is, admittedly, a god, but even his furry abs aren’t enough to cover for a script that doesn’t really know if it’s trying to be slapstick or sarcastic.
