Logo said Monday that it has green lit an “irreverent comedy show” for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community.

Simply Sketch (working title) will be executive-produced by Rosie O'Donnell, Dan MacDonald and Joe Del Hierro, the MTV Networks-owned service added.

The network said the series will “feature some of the freshest talents with a cast of up-and-coming faces from the comedic community.”

“Given the range of creative personalities in New York and Hollywood, we're going to take the sketch-comedy genre into brand-new territory," Logo senior vice president of original programming Eileen Opatut said in a prepared statement. "Rosie is one of television's greatest icons, and we're thrilled to work with her and her producing partners on this series for the Logo audience."
