Opie & Anthony, 'Krod Mandoon' on Burgeoning Comedy Central Slate

Viacom-owned Comedy Central is developing a TV show with Opie and Anthony, the radio shock jocks fired when the media conglomerate owned CBS Radio.

The show, called “Search and Destroy," is described as a scavenger hunt in which “teams of comedians run amok in New York City with a list of assignments and head-to-head competitions.”

The radio duo were fired for a stunt in which they encouraged couples to have sex in public locations around New York. One couple did their thing in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, leading to numerous complaints.

The show is part of a large slate of new shows on which Comedy Central is working.

Projects in development include short-form, sketch/variety, scripted narrative and animation, headlined by a foray into medieval comedy. Talent including Snoop Dogg, Andy Richter, David Alan Grier, Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Nick Swardson, Daniel Tosh and Bobby Lee are attached to the programs.

Comedy Central has given a series order to the fantasy comedy “Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire.” The hero is billed as the last great hope in a medieval struggle. The live-action show, scheduled to premiere in the first quarter of 2009, is written by Peter Knight, and executive produced by Mr. Knight, Keith Samples, Brad Johnson, Courtney Conte and Flody Juarez.

"This year's development slate features an incredibly diverse and versatile array of talent and concepts," said Lauren Corrao, president of original programming at Comedy Central. "Our core viewers expect nothing short of the best comedy options and continue to connect with the brand we've built. We're confident that these ideas will resonate with them and will continue to grow the network's success into the coming year."
