Contrary to what the article states, the current talks do not state that it will be a comedy series, but a drama.



This link explains the discrepancy: https://www.facebook.com/IndieGameTheMovie/posts/35236881810...

Basically, HBO has a "half hour" department, which does basically all comedies, and a "one hour" department which are generally dramas. This show will be a drama, but since it's in the "half-hour" department, it's organizationally known as "comedy".

Trivia: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was the first BBC Radio Comedy to be recorded in stereo. This was bureaucratically impossible, so it was initially classified as a Radio Drama.
