Actor Paul Reubens' madcap PEE-WEE HERMAN SHOW is heading back to TV in the U.S.
Bosses at HBO have announced they will broadcast the Broadway production based on Paul Reubens' original stage show early next year (11).
Reubens has recreated his Saturday morning kids show, Pee-wee's Playhouse, as an adult production for the stage and the concept has been a big hit in both Los Angeles and New York.
A statement from HBO reads, "Before his hit series and movies, HBO introduced Paul Reubens' Pee-wee Herman to a national audience in the Young Comedians series, followed by the groundbreaking 1981 special.
"It's thrilling to have Paul back on the network, and it will be a blast to return to Pee-wee's Playhouse."
