Bring on the funny!
By now you’ve heard about all the new teevee shows announced by the networks. Here’s some new Comedy Central shows you might be able to look forward to, as a while bunch of new shows are going to pilot:
Root of All Evil, a courtroom show in which comedians argue that their client is the root of all evil. The show would pit Paris Hilton against Dick Cheney, or chick flicks against video games. Lewis Back is the judge.
Held Up, in which a bank teller is held hostage by two teams of robbers and a comic version of the Stockholm syndrome ensues.
An animated Larry the Cable Guy show, as if Larry wasn’t animated enough. Here he’s the co-owner of a cable TV channel whose other owner would prefer to program classier fare.
Michael Ian Black Doesn’t Understand, starring you-know-who in a sketch show/
Night Writer from one-time Saturday Night Live head writer T. Sean Shannon.
The Watch List, which features material from up-and-coming Middle Eastern-American comedians.
According to TV Week, Comedy Central also has production deals in the works for David Alan Grier and JoKoy.
