Jack Black has rendered plenty of chuckle-worthy roles in his acting career, but for his latest project, the comedic actor is mainly remaining behind the lens as a co-producer. ET sat down with Black and creators Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci to get the scoop on Ghost Ghirls.
"The funniest thing is when someone is very confident but their confidence is based on nothing and so that causes them to fail and fall even harder than someone that didn't have as much confidence," Blasucci previewed of the show, in which she and Lund also star as the titular characters.
The empty confidence of Blasucci and Lund's characters lies in their craft: ghost busting. The two reveal their inexperience at their skill as they attempt to solve paranormal happenings, which results in some comical scenarios.
"We had these characters and then we're both fans of the paranormal genre, so we just decided to set our show in that genre," added Lund.
The show, which will soon premiere as a 12-episode web series on Yahoo! Screen, is produced by Jack Black's production company Electric Dynamite in unison with Shine America.
"Jeremy Konner (director) is a friend of mine and we'd worked together before on a little web series called 'Drunk History,'" Black explained of his involvement in the project. "I'm always interested in anything that he's working on and he brought me this little 10-minute sample of a show called 'Ghost Ghirls'...and it was so funny and a fresh new way, and I jumped on it."
Although he doesn't star in the series, Black will appear on the show from time to time as well as celebrities such as Jason Schwartzman and Molly Shannon.
