Comedy Central previews new series

Net introduces 'Krod Mandoon,' 'Demetri Martin'

Comedy Central original programming topper Lauren Corrao introduced two new upcoming series.

The farcical “Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire” – a kind of spoof on hourlong syndie action-fantasy skeins with umlauts punctuating its vowels – premieres Thursday, April 9 at 10 p.m.

Also previewed was the long-awaited “Important Things with Demetri Martin,” which included twentysomething observational-comic star Martin breaking out his trademark flipcharts and pointer.

Presented data included Martin’s idea for a “baby silencer,” a device that muzzles infants on planes. The Gotham-based comic also indicated his target aud – the entire U.S.

“If we get a third of that, that will be about 100,000 viewers, and that will be OK,” he noted.

Series premieres Wednesday, Feb. 11 at 10:30 p.m.
