“It’s been talked about for a couple of years,” he says. “We almost did it for Nickelodeon.”
Herman admits he’s been approached by “all the networks.” “I’m weighing out the options, he says, “sifting through.”
In the meantime, he does have an HBO broadcast of his current Broadway show, “The Pee-wee Herman Show,” premieres in March.
Herman previously starred in HBO’s “The Pee-wee Herman Show” and CBS’s “Pee-wee’s Playhouse.”
