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.
