The funnymen have signed a deal with bosses at the streaming service to develop With Bob and David, in which they star as "dishonourably discharged Navy SEALs".

The pair will also write and executive produce the new project.

Odenkirk and Cross first collaborated on the short-lived The Ben Stiller Show, but became cult favourites with their 1995 sketch series Mr. Show With Bob and David.

The five-episode series will mark Cross' return to Netflix, after the company's executives revived hit comedy Arrested Development for a fourth season in 2013. Meanwhile, Odenkirk will be filming With Bob and David during his hiatus from Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul.
