Another comedian, Eugene Mirman, is the focus of a sketch show, “Eugene!,” about a TV network. The network also has the previously announced buddy sketch comedy series “My Mans” in the works.

Matt Braunger, another comedian, has a single-camera sitcom, “Braunger,” on the way, and the “Auto-Tune the News” creators are the focal point of “Gregory Brothers.” Another comedy, “Nathan for You,” comes from writer and comedian Nathan Fielder, the story notes.

The story reports: “The net has ‘Overloaded,’ a comedic short-form look at the world of social media; the previously announced ‘Review,’ about a critic who reviews the most difficult life experiences by living them; and the animated ‘Robots,’ about a group of household electronics who plot to take over the world.”

Other projects include “The Burn” with Jeff Ross; and “Trip Tank,” an animated anthology.
