Produced by Jack Black (who also guest stars in the two-part finale), Ghost Ghirls is a 12-episode web comedy series that follows the antics of two best friends, Heidi (Amanda Lund) and Angelica (Maria Blasucci), who work as paranormal investigators. Each episode sees the hilarious duo on bumbling adventures, as they attempt to solve otherworldly cases. During this recent interview to promote the September 9th premiere on Yahoo! (www.screen.yahoo.com), Jack Black talked about the evolution of this web series, why he hopes to do more original content like this in the future, how he was influenced by paranormal stories like The Shining, Rosemary’s Baby and Ghost Busters, how they hope to release a soundtrack, and cool guest stars. He also talked about the animated Tenacious D series that he’s developing, which he describes as post-apocalyptic, but with music. Check out what he had to say after the jump. »

Jack Black is already heavily invested in Yahoo, choosing it as the platform on which he will debut his upcoming comedy web series, Ghost Ghirls. During the Cannes Lions festival, Black hinted that he may be doubling down. The actor and comedian commented that he is working on an animated web series starring his rock band, Tenacious D. Though Black didn't say for sure that the series will live on Yahoo, he announced the series while appearing at a panel alongside Yahoo Head of Video Erin McPherson. His Ghost Girls is one of the many star-studded comedy series McPherson touted at Yahoo's Digital Content Newfronts presentation, and it is set to debut (after about a year of anticipation) sometime in the fall. "Video is critical to Yahoo’s mission," McPherson said during the panel. "Video is growing exponentially online...and we’re right there with it." She right. It's growing so fast, »

Austin's South by Southwest festival begins in just a few days, and it could be the place where your web series script finds a buyer. The CW's Digital division, which has been busy distributing classic web series and producing a few of its own, will be present at the Interactive Festival, where fledgling creators will have a chance to pitch their ideas to the major network. CW Digital will occupy a booth that it will cohabitate with Two and a Half Men/Big Bang Theory creator Chuck Lorre and the creators of NBC's Revolution (who recently launched a few web companions of their own). All of the featured properties are linked through their association with Warner Bros. SXSW will also be the place where we will get a big time update from Jack Black about the Ghost Ghirls series he is executive producing for Yahoo. Black will promote the upcoming »

At the Grammys on Sunday, February 10, Jimmy Fallon will complete half an Egot according to our predictions. The Emmy-winning comic and talk show host is the frontrunner to win Best Comedy Album for "Blow Your Pants Off," getting 12/5 odds. -Insertgroups:12- But not everyone agrees. Though he's the overwhelming favorite of users, our editors are split, with two backing Fallon and three favoring the Jack Black/Kyle Gass music duo Tenacious D for their collection "Rize of the Fenix." They're currently in second place with 10/3 odds. In third place with 11/2 odds is Lewis Black for "In God We Rust." Unlike Fallon and Tenacious D, Black is a previous winner, with Grammys in 2006 for "The Carnegie Hall Performance" and 2010 for "Stark Raving Black." -Addprediction:76:387:Click to predict Best Comedy Album:addprediction- Following in fourth place is Margaret Cho.

Tenacious D have revealed plans to launch a new comedy rock festival. Jack Black and Kyle Gass said that they have booked a date at Santa Monica Pier on October 19 for the one-off event, but they have yet to sign up any acts. Flight of the Conchords, Tim Minchin and South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker were named as possible headliners. When asked whether they might stage a Blur vs Oasis-style rivalry with Flight of the Conchords, Black told Rolling Stone: "We actually have been talking about joining forces, because we've always wanted to do a double bill. "We're working on a festival, called 'Festival Supreme'. It'll be a meeting of the minds. It's gonna be like Mount Rockmore, where you've got your Flight of the Conchords, your Lonely Island, your Tenacious (more) »
