Comedy Central Announces Development Slate, Orders ‘Ugly Americans’

May 14, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Comedy Central has greenlit the animated series “Ugly Americans.”
Seven episodes have been ordered for a premiere in the first quarter of 2010. The series, executive produced by David Stern, chronicles an alternate-universe New York City, in which horror, fantasy and sci-fi creatures live alongside humans.
The network also has set premiere dates for several previously announced new series and specials.
“Tosh.0,” a topical series on the Internet hosted by Daniel Tosh, will debut June 4. “Michael & Michael Have Issues,” starring Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter, will premiere July 15, while comedy series “Secret Girlfriend” debuts Oct. 14. Also in October, Comedy Central will unveil Jeff Dunham’s currently untitled series.
Joan Rivers will be the latest celebrity to get roasted on the network on Aug. 9.
Comedy Central also announced projects in development for the 2009-10 season with talent including Jamie Foxx, Ron White, Andy Dick, Judah Friedlander, Ice Cube and Randy and Jason Sklar. Below is a list of shows and descriptions from Comedy Central:
PILOTS/PRESENTATIONS (all titles listed are working titles)
Untitled Ron White Show
If you know Ron White’s standup, you know he has something to say about everything. The Ron White show will be a half-hour comedy show that is a natural extension of his one-of-a-kind persona. Through branded segments, remotes and storytelling, White will take a look at stories from across the country and run them through his Everyman perspective. He doesn’t shy away from any topic and, through his unique brand of storytelling, always makes them relatable to his audiences. The show will focus on events and stories that come from the heartland looking out at a crazy world. Executive produced by White, Eddie Feldmann (“The Showbiz Show With David Spade,” “Dennis Miller Live”), John MacDonald and New Wave Entertainment.
“Ghost/Aliens”
A cast-contingent pilot written by Phil Johnston, “Ghosts/Aliens” centers on Trey Hamburger and his loyal best friend, Mike Stevens—a couple of regular reefer-loving guys living the good life in Leonard, Mich., until everything goes awry. “Ghosts/Aliens” follows Trey and Mike’s quest to expose the truth about the existence of ghosts and aliens. It’s executive produced by Scott Aversano and Phil Johnston.
Untitled Andy Dick Project
Andy Dick stars in this wild and unpredictable sketch-variety show that features digital shorts, sketches, man-on-the-street segments, in-studio guests and animation. It’s the best of every comedy show you’ve ever seen packed into 11 outrageous minutes. Segments will include “Dick at Large,” “Dick Tips” and “Advice From a Dick.”
“Midwest Teen Sex Show”
“Midwest Teen Sex Show” is definitely not your parent’s sex education class. Based on the popular Web series of the same name, this weekly comedy show brings the discussion of sex to the forefront in an outrageous and comedic way. Every week, the show tackles a different topic (i.e., masturbation, one-night stands, lesbians) exploring it through a variety of sketches. Created by Nikol Hasler, Guy Clarke and Brittany Barber and executive produced by Principato-Young and Double Features’ Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher.
“The Fuzz”
“The Fuzz” is a procedural cop series set in a corrupt city where humans and puppets co-exist. Viewers follow the police force’s first puppet detective and his human partner as they unravel high-profile cases. Executive produced by the 2009 Webby Award-winning Waverly Films, the series also has been greenlit for five Webisodes to air on Comedy Central’s digital network, Atom.com, later this year.
“Workaholics”
Based on the Web series featured on 5thyear.com, “Workaholics” follows three friends living and working together after college. The sketch group Mail Order Comedy, comprising Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine and Anders Holm and director Kyle Newacheck, stars in this scripted comedy where they spend their days selling time-shares and their nights partying. Executive produced by 5th Year, Avalon and Gigapix Studios.
SCRIPT/PAPER DEVELOPMENT (all titles listed are working titles)
Jamie Foxx Animated Project
Oscar winner Jamie Foxx stars in this half-hour animated comedy loosely based on his Sirius/XM satellite radio program “The Foxxhole.” Foxx and his tight-knit crew of comedian buddies convene weekly at “The Foxxhole” to discuss everything from politics to music to STDs. The series also will follow Foxx’s whirlwind life as an A-list star and his crew’s attempts to define their own careers. Foxx and Marcus King will executive produce and Lance Crouther will write the pilot.
“Gypsy Cab”
An animated show featuring “30 Rock” star Judah Friedlander as a wacked out gypsy cab driver whose great ambition in life is to top everyone around him. His hat simply reads “#1.” When Judah’s not scheming to get his real cab license, he roams the streets of Manhattan picking up celeb fares like Sarah Silverman, Jim Gaffigan, John Mayer and Dave Attell. Monologues will be delivered from the back seat, a la “Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist.” Friedlander’s outrageous standup voice will be laced throughout. “Gypsy Cab” is written and created by Jordan Rubin (“Crank Yankers,” “The Man Show”).
“The Invadersteins”
One year ago, aliens invaded Earth. The invasion was swift and brutal. Most major cities were destroyed. Millions died. But mankind pulled itself up by its bootstraps and fought back. Alien motherships fell from the skies and plowed into the world’s most recognizable skylines. After their defeat, the aliens retreated in shame, except for one family, the Invadersteins. This animated project comes to Comedy Central from Dan Vebber (“Futurama,” “American Dad”) and Avalon Television.
“The Life”
Ice Cube and DJ Pooh have reunited to pen a script for the first time since their hit comedy film “Friday.” Set in Los Angeles, “The Life” follows a surprise one-hit-wonder music star as he tries to maintain his fame, friends and family while growing his bank account. Cube and Pooh will executive produce along with Cube Vision’s Matt Alvarez.
The Sklar Brothers Sports Comedy Show
Randy and Jason Sklar star in a single-camera, half-hour workplace comedy about two brothers who own a small-time family-owned trading card company that is being taken over by a sports marketing conglomerate. The series will feature professional athletes and sports personalities. Executive produced by Michael Eisner’s Tornante Co.
“Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down”
Executive produced by Paul Sappiano and based on the film of the same name, “Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down” is a how-to guide for twenty-somethings living in the city. Episodes will follow several characters through fast-paced adventures, while the show’s narrator gives tips and explains how the characters plan to “get down.” If you want to know how to hook-up or which drugs are sketchy and which are fun, this show will tell you.
“Best Buds”
“Best Buds” begins with two friends, the American dream and a medical marijuana dispensary. These stoners are sensible and ambitious and decide to pursue the American dream in a new way. “Best Buds” is an anti-establishment, anti-sitcom that’s an attack on pop culture. The show will examine how stupid everything is through the eyes of the twenty-something generation’s stoned eyes. Written by Josh Lobis and Darin Moiselle and produced by FUSE Entertainment’s Mikkel Bondesson and Kristin Campo.
