Laffer Web site starts prod’n on 5 new series

Rubin to exec produce

Laffer Web site nationallampoon.com has started production on five new series, including the animated show “Flush Life,” written by former “TV Nation” scribe Roy Sekoff.

Launching by spring, “Life” follows the adventures of public bathroom graffiti characters that spring to life after the lights are turned off.

Other shows, all firing up within the next several months, include “Virtual Candidate,” a program that allows Netizens to piece together their own personalized campaign participants, and “Cybercops,” which chronicles the lives of hacker investigators.

New webisodes of the programs, also including “Virtual Drinking Buddy” and “Online Confessional,” will typically appear each month.

Scott Rubin (ex co-producer of Pearson TV’s “So You Think You’re Funny?”) will serve as the shows’ exec producer and editor in chief.

“These five shows, combined with our existing series, add up to the most ambitious original programming schedule on the Internet,” assures nationallampoon.com prexy and CEO James Jimirro.
