Comedy Central is known to have a look at several different projects and give pretty much anyone a shot at making the next big thing. That's why there's been a dozen talk shows and several one season series like Why? from Hannibal Buress. The network is just aching for another hit. Enter three new series that were just picked up to seasons. In a press release, Comedy Central highlighted what the new shows would be about.
The first of the three is titled Corportae and comes from Pat Bishop, Matt Ingebretson, and Jake Weisman. Ingebretson and Weisman star as junior-executives-in-training for a tyrannical CEO (Lance Reddick). Aparna Nancherla, Adam Lustick and Anne Dudek also star.
The next show is titled Taskmaster and stars series creator Alex Horne and Reggie Watts as the titular taskmaster. The two will judge five comedians who will be assessed based on talent in a series of "stupefying" tasks.
The third series is The New Negroes. Coming from Baron Vaughn and Open Mike Eagle, the stand up and musical showcase aims to talk about black life in America while dissecting the media surrounding it. Funny or Die and Lance Bangs are among the producers.
But we're not done yet. Comedy Central has also announced the pilots it's working on for the upcoming television season. Among them are shows from Awkwafina, Arturo Castro, Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider, and Franchesca Ramsey. There are nine and you can read their descriptions below.
