Comedy Central Sketches Swardson Series Order


Comedy Central has ordered six episodes of a yet-to-be titled sketch comedy series from comedian Nick Swardson.

The series, from Sony Pictures television and Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions, will spotlight digital shorts, animated segments, similar to his Web series Gay Robot, and man-on-the-street interviews, among other segments. It is expected to premiere on the network next year.

"We love Nick at Comedy Central and even more importantly, our audience loves Nick," said Lauren Corrao, executive vice president, original programming and development for Comedy Central, in a statement. "We've seen it in his movies, his stand-up, with his Reno 911! character Terry, and in the work he's done developing Gay Robot. We can't wait to expand his creative voice into a sketch series."
