Rob Corddry: Amazed at Web series’ success

Saturday September 1, 2012

NEW YORK -- Now that "Childrens Hospital" is in its fourth season on Adult Swim, its creator, writer, director and star Rob Corddry is looking for ways to bring its cast to the big screen. Not in a film adaptation of the satirical show, but a film using its actors.

"We have talked about doing a movie and we are committed to doing it at some point. It’s gonna take one of us to just sit down and write it but it’s not gonna be based on ‘Childrens.’ It’s not gonna have the same cast of characters but it will have the same cast," Corddry said.

"Childrens Hospital" is about a TV show that’s billed as the longest-running medical drama ever in television history. It mocks other medical dramas.

The show, which started as a Web series, airs Thursday nights, pulling in more than 1 million viewers per episode. It is nominated for an Emmy Award.

"It’s only caught up with me now I think," said Corddry when asked about the show’s success. "We’re nominated for an Emmy and I’m still kind of like, ‘It’s got to be a mistake because aren’t we on the Internet?’ "
