Simon Helberg Derek and Simon
Derek and Simon were created in 2005 by Derek Waters, Simon Helberg, and Bob Odenkirk; after meeting with Waters and Helberg, Odenkirk suggested they capitalize on stories from their own lives. The project progressed through several stages.
It started with a pilot presentation. The Derek & Simon Show was created from two 15-minute segments, “Derek & Simon: A Bee and a Cigarette” and “Derek & Simon: The Pity Card,” which were combined in a half-hour pilot for HBO as The Derek & Simon Show.
When it did not air, the two segments were sent to film festivals such as Sundance and South by Southwest, as well as being included in Timothy McSweeney’s Wholphin DVD Magazine. The Pity Card was described as “hilariously irreverent” by Matt Tobey of Comedy Central Insider. Derek and Simon: The Show was then created for Super Deluxe in 2007.
