Comedy Central Picks Up News, Reality Spoofs

Mar 26, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Comedy Central is bringing David Alan Grier’s brand of spoofery back to TV.
The former “In Living Color” star will executive produce and star in “David Alan Grier’s Chocolate News,” a newsmagazine sendup. Also executive producing are Robert Morton (“Mind of Mencia”), Fax Bahr and Adam Small (“MADtv”) and Generate’s Peter Aronson and Jordan Levin.
The network announced the pickup of Grier’s show and “Reality Bites,” a spoof of the reality genre from the 3Ball Productions, producers of “The Biggest Loser.” Each episode will be a self-contained spoof of a particular type of reality show; prospective titles include “Are You Smarter Than a Monkey?” and “So You Think You Can Dive!”
“We are thrilled to be moving ahead with these two totally unique series that bring fresh new concepts and distinctive points of view to Comedy Central,” Lauren Corrao, original programming president, said in a statement Wednesday. The cable channel just announced its 2008-09 development slate.
“Bites” will join the Comedy Central lineup this summer, with “Chocolate News” set to premiere in the first quarter of 2009.
