Comedy Central’s inhouse multiplatform division CC:Studios announced its upcoming slate of digital programs Thursday, including the premiere of one new series, renewals for two and five more in development.
“I am sincerely proud of how our team has established CC:Studios as an appealing destination for established and emerging comedy content creators,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s president, content development and original programming.
New series “Roustabout” follows comedian Kurt Braunohler (pictured) on a seven-city jet-ski mission from Chicago down the Mississippi River to New Orleans, and includes appearances from Wyatt Cenac, Jon Daly, Kyle Kinane and Kristen Schaal. The goal of the journey is to raise money for Heifer International to send 500 goats and 1,000 chickens to Africa.
Series in development include an untitled project from Matt Braunger about the last white man in Los Angeles in the year 2042; “How to Be Friends With Everyone on Earth,” from Sean O’Connor, about a Vine star attempting to adapt his six-second videos into a book; an untitled project from Rich Fulcher discussing absurd hypotheticals with under-the-influence guests; an untitled David Angelo project described as “Seinfeld” with a sedative; and “Broken People,” from Taylor Orci and Jared Nigro, about a seemingly successful yet unhappy couple.
“Six Guys One Car,” from YouTube’s Dormtainment, and “New Timers,” from Matt Porter and Charlie Hankin, will both return for a second season.
Previous CC:Studios projects “This Is Not Happening” and “Idiotsitter” are set to move from the digital space to Comedy Central’s broadcast lineup this year.
