Showtime has given a series order to a new animated half-hour series centered on Donald Trump. The pay-cable net ordered 10 episodes of the untitled show, to be executive produced by Stephen Colbert.
The satirical program is scheduled to begin airing this fall.
“I know a lot of people wanted to do this, and I’m honored that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world,” Colbert said.
“The fresh, cutting-edge comedy will present the truish adventures of Trump’s confidants and bon vivants — family, top associates, heads of government, golf pros and anyone else straying into his orbit — intrepidly exploring their histories and their psyches, revealing insights into what makes them so definitively Trumpian,” the announcement adds. “It’s a workplace comedy where the office happens to be oval; it’s a character study in search of character, as seen through the eyes of an imaginary documentary crew.
