Whether Rosenabaum will return to Smallville in the near future or not is still an unknown, but fans of the actor still have a reason to celebrate this morning. SyFy has officially announced that it has commissioned a script for a half-hour comedy show that interlaces with the Science Fiction genre in an interesting way. Rosenbaum, who created the show, will costar with Jonathan Silverman, not as good guys or bad guys in a fantastic alternate universe where mean fly and laser guns emit slow-moving beams of light, but as actors who used to play those parts on TV. Here are the details from SyFy.
