The Coreys do a double-team
Corey Ham and Corey Feldman are finally reuniting.
The two '80s teen throbs are signed up for The Coreys, an improv sitcom from RDF Media, the makers of ABC's reality show Wife Swap. The show is described by Variety as similar to Larry David's Curb Your Enthusiasm.
The Coreys will tell the story of Feldman, who is living a stable, happy life with his family. When life throws the wacky, unpredictable Haim back into Feldman's life, comedy ensues.
RDF USA executive vice president of development Greg Goldman says the Coreys make a potent comedy team with a "chemistry that just pops off the screen," and the duo are a nostalgic treat for people of all ages. The company will begin shopping the shows to networks this week.
"Everyone feels like we know the Coreys," Goldman said. "They are, for all intents and purposes, brothers. One moment they're having knock-out fights, and the next moments they're hugging as if nothing had happened."
Feldman and Haim starred in many films during the 1980s. The two first appeared together in the 1987 vampire comedy The Lost Boys, wherein Feldman's vampire-killing comic book nerd helped Haim rescue his brother from the clutches of evil teen vampires led by Kiefer Sutherland.
In 1988's License To Drive, Haim portrayed a teen who had flunked his driver's license test but was convinced by his nutball friend (Feldman) to go out on the town and partake in festivities. Neither of the young stars actually had their driver's licenses during the filming of the movie.
In 1989's Dream a Little Dream, Feldman performed a Michael Jackson dance for a dismayed Haim.
Feldman has recently been voicing Sprx-77 on the animated series Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!
