Comedy Adds to Development Slate


Anaheim, Calif. -- Comedy Central has green-lit development for pilot
production of six series, according to Debbie Liebling, senior vice president of
original programming and development.

Shows that attain series commitments will join previously announced projects
The Sweet Spot (starring Bill Murray and his brothers) and the
as-yet-untitled new series from Jackhole Productions (Adam Carolla, Jimmy Kimmel
and Daniel Kellison) on Comedy's schedule in 2002.

Green-lit were:

\u0007 Auto Biography, in which celebrities tell their own stories from the
comfort of their own cars;

\u0007 Nature Boy, a comedy 'sporting' show with none other than former
forest ranger turned comedian Harland Williams;

\u0007 The Lemur, a show that documents the off-the-wall events of a local
on-air radio show;

\u0007 Celebrity Shorts, in which three celebrity guests make their
directorial debuts in original short filmmaking;

\u0007 Flunk Out, a reality show that taps into college life by asking
students to videotape the oddities and extremes of campus living; and

\u0007 HiQ, a reality show in which everyday people put themselves in
extreme situations.
