The SciFi Channel has announced their upcoming TV slate with new shows from Mark Burnett and Lynda Obst, but of most interest to comical types will be the news that the PAINKILLER JANE tv show has been greenlit for 22 episodes starting in January.

Also, Ben Edlund (THE TICK) is developing a show called Witch Doctor, “a comedic drama that centers on a man who finds himself endowed with amazing healing powers, which opens him up to a magical world.”
