‘Idiotsitter’ Renewed for Season 2 by Comedy Central

Comedy Central has renewed “Idiotsitter” for a second season. The series stars Jillian Bell and Charlotte Newhouse as a wealthy heiress and her court-appointed guardian. Bell and Newhouse also serve as executive producers.

“I don’t know what it is about that title, but it just resonates for me …” said Comedy Central president Kent Alterman.

Season one featured Bell’s character Billie, an Ivy League graduate strapped for cash, answering an ad for a babysitter, only to find that the job is really as a guardian of Gene, a spoiled heiress played by Newhouse. The first season ended in March. Season two will find Gene and Billie heading off to a college campus.

“We’re so excited to get to do this again,” said Bell and Newhouse. “It’s literally the most fun we’ve ever had in our lives. Hopefully the new college atmosphere will broaden our minds and teach us how to butt chug.”

The 10-episode second season will premier in 2017. Pam Kohl, Amy Slomovits, Dave Becky, Brady McKay and John Levenstein also serve as executive producers. Monika Zielinska and Daniel Wolfberg are the executives in charge of production for Comedy Central.

Idiotsitter” is the second series developed as a short-form project for CC.com to migrate to the linear cable channel, following “This is Not Happening.”
