Amagansett resident and Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels is teaming up with former SNL cast member Martin Short for an upcoming comedy on NBC. Michaels is executive producing the new show, and Short will reportedly play a game show host.

This wouldn’t be the first time Short and Michaels create comedy gold. Together, their special alchemical magic has led to classic skits and characters, including Ed Grimley, Jackie Rogers Jr., Nathan Thurm, his impression of Robin Williams and Jiminy Glick‘s interview with Michaels, to name a scant few.

Short was part of the SNL cast in 1984 and 1985.
