HBO (ended 2000)
In 1999, Jack Black and Kyle Gass filmed a series of 6 comedic shorts for HBO. Each episode showed Tenacious D during all of their adventures while trying to make it big. Each episode contained an open mike performance with Tenacious D, these performances are still the only place you can hear a few of their rare classic songs.
Plans were made to extend the show to a full 30 minutes and write ten more episodes, but when it came time to renew their contract, The D had a falling out with HBO, and plans for any future episodes were scrapped. Much to the delight of fans though, all 6 episodes were included in the Tenacious D-The Complete Master Works DVD that was released on November 4th 2003.moreless
