Sony to Produce Two Comedy Pilots


Comedy Central and Sony Pictures Television announced a two-project deal Thursday.

The first pilot will feature Comedy veteran Nick Swardson in Gay Robot, to be produced by Adam Sandler’s and Jack Giarraputo’s production company, Happy Madison.

In the second, documentarian Morgan Spurlock will take viewers “on a tour of American society” in Public Nuisance.

“Deals like these that put us in business with extraordinarily funny and talented people like Morgan, Nick and the team at Happy Madison are exactly what we're looking for as the profile of Comedy Central continues to grow and we cement the status of the network as the home of cutting-edge comedy,” executive vice president of original programming and development Lauren Corrao said in a prepared statement.
