Denis Leary ‘Benders’ hockey comedy headed to IFC

Denis Leary has another one of his ideas for television get OKed.  IFC has greenlit and oredered eight episodes of Benders.

The show, which has a 30-minute run time,  is a hockey comedy.   The show was developed under the title Uncle Chubby’s.

The show watches friends who are united by an akward obsession with their hockey league.

None of them even possess the slightest bit of talent. This pitfall doesn’t stop them from playing bare bones, and pathetic style of hockey.

Jennifer Caserta, president of IFC, said the show embodies the fresh and exciting comedy the network is trying to promote nowadays.
