Comedy Central announced its latest development slate for webseries via CC:Studios, which has become more vital as a pipeline to TV this year as two previous CC:Studios projects — This Is Not Happening and Idiotsitter — have made or are making the leap from YouTube to boob tube.
“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 President.
“Roustabout,” a comedic travelogue with Kurt Braunohler jet-skiing from Chicago to New Orleans to raise money for charity, debuted this week. Wyatt Cenac, Jon Daly, Kyle Kinane and Kristen Schaal guest star.
