Comedy Central greenlights two sketch series (titles to be understood later)

Comedy Central has greenlit two sketch comedy series, one starring Nick Kroll of “The League.” Kroll will frontline “The Nick Show Kroll” (yes, that’s the title), which he is exec producing with John Levenstein (“Arrested Development”) and Jonathan Krisel (“Portlandia”).

In addition, Keegan-Michael Key (“Just Go with It,” “Gary Unmarried”) and Jordan Peele (“Little Fockers”) will appear in an untitled series (perhaps they’re still figuring out how to scramble the words) that they are exec producing with Ian Roberts and Jay Martel.

Head of original programming and production Kent Alterman offered this reveletory quote: “I haven’t seen either pilot yet, but I think so highly of the talent involved, I can’t imagine the shows won’t be great.”
