Logo Green-Lights Rosie’s Show


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."
