Cabler to debut the roast Labor Day weekend
“If only James Franco was a more successful, multi-hyphenated, incessant creative risk taker in different media, he’d be the perfect person to roast. Oh well… I suppose we’ll just have to make do,” said Kent Alterman, prez of Content Development & Original Programming at the net.
Franco added: “I’ve dreamed about this roast for as long as I can remember.”
“Comedy Central Roast of James Franco” will be exec produced by Miles Levy and Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Prods., the team behind Comedy Central’s roasts of Charlie Sheen, William Shatner and Donald Trump.
