Animated Housemates Drawn Back Together For Another Season! COMEDY CENTRAL Picks Up A Third Season Of "Drawn Together" The Hit Series From Creators Matt Silverstein And Dave Jeser

New Deal Calls For 14 Episodes Beginning 4Q 2006

NEW YORK, November 9, 2005 -- A disgusting pig, a gay gamer and a racist princess?no, this isn't another season of "The Real World," it's COMEDY CENTRAL's dose of animated reality. COMEDY CENTRAL has ordered a third season of television's first animated reality series, it was announced today by Lauren Corrao, executive vice president of original programming and development. The third season of "Drawn Together," created by Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser, will premiere during the fourth quarter of 2006 and consist of 14 episodes.

"We can't get enough of these dysfunctional housemates and we are thrilled to see what the third season brings to our beloved animated reality stars" said Corrao. "'Drawn Together' has given us, along with 'South Park,' a solid hour of animated comedy and the creators continue to bring in creative, hysterical storylines that keep us wanting more."

"We're thrilled," said Silverstein and Jeser. "Not since 'Police Academy 8' has a premise this flimsy been stretched this far."

Since its second season premiere on October 19, 2005, "Drawn Together" paired with the network's solid series, "South Park," has built an adult animation block that has dominated the cable television landscape on Wednesday nights. Through the first three episodes, "Drawn Together" has averaged 2.1 million total viewers (P2+) and a 1.3 rating in the key P18-49 demographic. For three weeks the series was the was the most-watched show on cable in its timeslot (10:30 p.m.) in that key demo as well as in all key male demos (M18-24, M18-34, M18-49 and M25-54). The "Drawn Together: Season One Uncensored!" DVD was released on Tuesday, October 4 and debuted in both Videoscan and Video Business News in the top 10 TV on DVD releases.

Together, the animated hour of "South Park" and "Drawn Together" (Wednesdays from 10:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.) made COMEDY CENTRAL the most-watched cable network among adults and men 18-49 and 18-34 for three weeks of the run (11/2). Also, among men 18-24, COMEDY CENTRAL ranked #2 in all of television for the hour.

"Drawn Together" presents a world where cartoon characters from various genres of animation are brought together to live under one roof. The characters leave their animated "reality" and enter a new world where their cartoon universes collide with a bang, combining different styles of animation and different personalities, all "drawn together." This is COMEDY CENTRAL's first original animated series that is drawn traditionally and in 2-D digital ink and paint animation.

The eight stars/housemates represent iconic archetypes from the world of animation and include: "Captain Hero" (Jess Harnell), a not-so-moral do-gooder reminiscent of the Saturday morning TV super heroes of the 70's; "Clara" (Tara Strong), a 20-year-old sweet and naive fairy-tale princess; "Toot Braunstein" (Tara Strong), a black and white pudgy heart throb from the 20's; "Foxxy Love" (Cree Summer), a sexy mystery-solving musician; "Spanky Ham" (Adam Carolla), a foul-mouthed internet download pig; "Ling-Ling" (Abbey McBride), an adorable Asian trading card mini-monster; "Wooldoor-Sockbat" (James Arnold Taylor), a wacky Saturday morning "whatchamacallit;" and "Xandir" (Jack Plotnick), a strong young adventurer, similar to the great video game warriors.

Credits for "Drawn Together" include Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser as creators, writers and executive producers. The series is based on characters developed by Silverstein, Jeser and Jordan Young ("The Simpsons"). Zoe Friedman and Scott Landsman are the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

Silverstein and Jeser previously served as writers on COMEDY CENTRAL's "The Man Show" as well as Fox's "Action" and "Andy Richter Controls the Universe."
