HBO Digital’s ‘Brody Stevens’ Lands at Comedy Central

Comedy, originally intended for HBO's on-air slate, is from Zach Galifianakis, Funny or Die

Comedy Central is bringing HBO Digital series “Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!” to the smallscreen, ordering six new episodes and expanding the six existing digital shorts to full halfhours.

Series is exec produced by Stevens along with Zach Galifianakis, Mike Gibbons, Dave Rath and Funny or Die. Documentary-style comedy follows the emotional rollercoaster life of stand-up comic Stevens as he pulls his life back together after suffering a mental breakdown witnessed by his fans and the world via Twitter. Show includes appearances from Sarah Silverman, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim.

Comedy Central will bow the series this summer.

“Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!” was originally under consideration at HBO for a full-fledged series, but the net relegated it to HBO Go as a digital skein.

Acquisition is yet another example of Comedy Central sifting through projects in the digital space to find content. Established series “Workaholics” along with forthcoming skeins “Drunk History” (from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay) and “Broad City” (from Amy Poehler) all have their roots online.
