Comedy Central Plans to Move Mobile Series On-Air

Dec 4, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Comedy Central said it is migrating a mobile television series to the linear network next year, representing the first time original phone content has made that leap.

The series, “Lil’ Bush: Resident of the United States,” has been running on the Amp’d Mobile service since its Sept. 1 debut. The show quickly became one of the most viewed series on Amp’d.

The show will launch run first on Comedy Central, then on Amp’d Mobile.

Comedy Central said the partnership between the network and Amp’d demonstrates Comedy Central’s interest in creating shows that can live on more than one viewing venue.
