Watched this last night, was pretty interesting. Only 4 parts, so it goes really quick, very well done.

I read something about a pizza guy with a bomb. Is this about the Jesse Eisnenburg movie?

This is a real life event in Erie, PA. Man robs a bank with a bomb strapped around his neck, he was a pizza delivery guy who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The movie was 30 Minutes Or Less. From Wikipedia:

The plot of the film bears a resemblance to a real-life bank robbery gone wrong that resulted in the death of Brian Wells in 2003.[17] As with the film, Wells was a pizza delivery man who was forced to wear a bomb and then robbed a bank under orders from plot's mastermind in an effort to have the bomb defused.[18] Additionally, an investigation found that the motive behind the robbery was for Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong, the convicted mastermind, to use the stolen money to hire a hitman to kill her father and receive her inheritance, also like the film.[17] Unlike the film, however, Wells was killed by the bomb after being caught by the police.

Despite the similarities to the case, Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group said the filmmakers and cast had no prior knowledge of the incident, while the screenwriters were "vaguely familiar" of it. Nevertheless, the film drew criticism from Jean Heid, Wells' sister, and Jerry Clark, a former FBI agent who witnessed Wells's death and led the case's investigation

Crazy... from your description... it sounds loosely based on the incident. The show is really quick, we watched in one night.
