Mike Salomon Lands Job on Netflix Sketch Series

Untitled3 - Mike Salomon Lands Job on Netflix Sketch SeriesMike Salomon (WPTV – M.F.A. ’16), a writer and producer on the recently premiered LMU created web series Starstuck, is at it again.

Salomon landed a job as a writer’s PA on comedy sketch series With Bob and David under Bob Odenkirk and David Cross that was picked up by Netflix last week.

Odenkirk and Cross, the Better Call Saul and Arrested Development stars, describe the reboot of their 1995 sketch comedy series Mr. Show With Bob and David: “After being dishonorably discharged from the Navy SEAL, Bob and David are back serving our country the way they do best: making sketch comedy,” according to Deadline Hollywood.

Salomon’s friend, an assistant to one of the executive producers of the show, told Salomon of the opportunity thinking he’d be a good fit. Without much knowledge of the job, Salomon applied, was offered the job and started working on the show the following Monday.

“It was very much a right place/right time situation. The turnaround to when the show got greenlit to when the writers started working was about three days,” says Salomon.

Salomon’s other accomplishments include publishing two short plays within the past year, winning first prize in the half-hour spec category of the Final Draft Big Break Contest and a 12-week fellowship with New York Film Academy.
