Harvey and George

You may be familiar with the ‘celebrity deaths come in threes’ trope. I’m still waiting for the third shoe to drop, but I found these last two particularly inspiring. Harvey Pekar was a real loss; Steinbrenner, not so much. Still, the thought persists…

IDEA FOR SITCOM

‘THE DEAD ODD COUPLE’

CUE THEME MUSIC

CUE VO

On July 12, Harvey Pekar was asked to remove himself from his earthly plane of existence. One day later, George Steinbrenner followed suit.

They were requested by the Powers that Be to share a living space for eternity, as part of a special celestial project.
