It seems that Will Ferrell simply cannot get enough of Anchorman these days, following the huge success of the recent sequel Anchorman: The Legend Continues. There was a lot of uncertainty about an Anchorman sequel but, after a long wait, we eventually got it and it was certainly worth waiting for.
During an interview to promote Anchorman: The Legend Continues, Will spoke about the possibility of people getting bored with having too much Rob Burgundy in their lives. While he claimed that the fans want as much Ron Burgundy as possible, it does seem that he has decided to move on from the character, while still sticking with an Anchorman theme.
Will Ferrell will now be involved in a new television series for NBC, which is titled Mission Control and has been described as Anchorman with astronauts. Mission Control will be set in 1962 and is official described as "A workplace ensemble in the tone of Anchorman examines what happens when a strong woman butts heads with a macho astronaut in the race to land on the moon."
According to the recent reports, Mission Control was originally pitched as a movie but was never given the green light to go ahead. Fans will be very excited for Mission Control and with a team on board which includes Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and David Hornsby, NBC could well have a hit on their hands.
