Brett McKenzie and Jemaine Clement will tape a performance on their upcoming United Kingdom tour to air as an hour-long special on HBO, the network where their sitcom aired in the USA from 2007 to 2009.

The original series also co-starred Rhys Darby (Wrecked) as the band's manager Murray and Kristen Schaal (The Last Man on Earth) as their devoted fan Mel.

The series was praised by critics and beloved by fans, turning the cult favorites into an worldwide sensation. McKenzie and Clement took home the Grammy for their album "The Distant Future" in 2008.

Since the end of the show in 2009, McKenzie has served as music supervisor on The Muppets, which earned him an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie first debuted on HBO in 2005 in an episode of the stand-up series "One Night Stand", then reappeared again 2007 for their self-titled hit series.

The comedy special will be directed by Hamish Hamilton.
