Bob Saget and Think Films are reuniting on "Farce of the Penguins," a comedic send-up of a similarly titled documentary that is in production with a planned release in Spring, 2006. Saget will write, direct, produce, and will perform several of the voices in this comedic adventure that will combine spectacular and heartwarming wildlife photography with an irreverent and decidedly R-rated theme and soundtrack. "The idea for this came organically," Saget says. "I was watching the "March of the Penguins" movie at my friend's house, and I couldn't stop doing the voice-overs of the penguins, reminiscent of when I did the voices of the animals on the video show." Well known by college students as the director of the cult comedy feature film "Dirty Work," and known the world over for his lengthy tours-of-duty on hit family television these past two decades, Saget received clamorous critical acclaim for his extended rendition of the off-color "The Aristocrats" joke in Paul Provenza's film of the same name. HBO has just ordered a script for an R-rated sitcom, built around Saget, that he will co-write, produce, and star in, portraying a Phoenix gynecologist raising a fourteen year-old boy.
