"This gear show comes from a genuine place of really loving gear and all the stuff that’s involved in whatever the activity you’re doing," Glaser tells us during an afternoon of decorating pumpkins. He picks up a flawless orange gourd as an example. "Like this could even be a gear show, like, I love all the markers, and all the stuff, and I love the way the little thing attaches into the pumpkin, and then it’s a little teeny thing, but it’s not quite a nail, it’s flat, but you know, you start getting into all the details of that stuff, whatever the activity, whether it’s athletic or not, uh, and that’s really what’s at the heart of the show."
Jon Glaser loves gear, but he also loves killing Paul Rudd on camera. "You know, it just happened in Delocated," Glaser admits, describing a scene from his masked sitcom pilot where the Anchorman actor is brutally murdered in a convenience store. "I thought would be funny, and he was thankfully game for it." Glaser repeated the trick in his Adult Swim miniseries Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter. ”I just thought it would be funny if he were killed again, and he also thought it would be funny. And then he may or may not be killed in this new show, so you will have to tune in to see."
