Comedy Central to add three new series

'Burn,' 'Review' and 'Nathan' greenlit

Comedy Central has greenlit three new series, one of which, “The Burn,” is scheduled to premiere this summer.

Two others, “Review with Forrest MacNeil” and “Nathan for You,” are set to bow in 2013.

Comedy Central roast veteran Jeff Ross will frontline “The Burn,” in which fellow comics will join him to mock the past week’s prominent news stories and public figures. Mike Gibbons and Tagline Television’s Willie Mercer and Amy Zvi will exec produce with Ross.

“Jeff embodies comedy past and comedy future simultaneously, and we are excited to be in the present with him,” Comedy Central programming and production head Kent Alterman said.

In “Review,” Andrew Daly (“Eastbound and Down”) will play a fictional critic who reviews not entertainment but life experiences, such as stealing, sex or divorce. Daly and Charlie Siskel (“Tosh.0”) exec produce.

“This show will be a great service to society,” Daly said. “If you’re thinking about cheating on your spouse or murdering someone, please wait until we review it so you can avoid the pitfalls and enjoy the experience.”

Canadian writer-comedian Nathan Fielder (“Jon Benjamin Has A Van”) stars in “Nathan,” playing an unorthodox and underqualified business advisor. Fielder will exec produce with Michael Koman (“Important Things with Demetri Martin”) and Dave Kneebone.
