Jack Black's 'Ghost Ghirls' receive Tenacious D concert at SXSW

Black and Kilmer on 'Ghost Ghirls'
In January, we reported on a paranormal spoof program called Ghost Ghirls that executive producer Jack Black was hell-bent on getting made.

Quick refresher, Ghost Ghirls is a Yahoo Screen Web comedy that follows the para-antics of two air-head ghost hunters played by co-creators of the show Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci. The show boasts several guest stars, including the recently announced, Val Kilmer.

According to EW.com it not only looks like the show is a definite, but Jack Black and his Tenacious D band mate, Kyle Gass, will be putting on a concert in Austin, TX to promote the series. The concert and a screening party will be on March 13 at YAHOO!’s SXSW venue.

According to a statement from Black, "There is no better to unleash the beast that is Ghost Ghirls on an unsuspecting audience."

"Austin knows how to rock, and how how to party, and how to marvel at the supernatural forces that inhabit our world. I’m so proud of this show, and I will be there with bells on, to bask in the glory."

The Web series premieres this summer.
