Comedy Central Orders Three Pilots

May 8, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Comedy Central has ordered three new pilots-a reality series, a sketch comedy show and an improvised/scripted series.

The first project is “Mark and Mike,” starring Milwaukee-based “American Movie” auteurs Mark Borshardt and Mike Schank as they try to make a new film.

The second is “American Body Shop,” a half-hour improvised series similar to Comedy Central’s hit “Reno 911!,” only set in the world of auto repair.

And the third project is a half-hour untitled variety show starring Chicago comedian DeRay Davis.

“These three pilots couldn’t be more different from one another stylistically, with each possessing its own unique comedic format and sensibility,” said Lauren Corrao, executive VP of original programming and development for the network.
