Comedy Picks Up a Pair


Comedy Central announced series pickups for Naked Trucker and T-Bones and Halfway Home.

Naked Trucker and T-Bones is a half-hour variety show that takes place at a truck stop and features a naked trucker and his sidekick. Comedy ordered six episodes, which will debut late this summer.

And Halfway Home is “an improvised half-hour narrative following the lives of a dysfunctional group of parolees living in a halfway house,” the network said. Comedy’s 10-episode order will premiere in early 2007.
