"LIL' BUSH" SIGNS-ON FOR A SECOND TERM WITH COMEDY CENTRAL�

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

New Season To Consist Of Ten Episodes Beginning Spring 2008

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NEW YORK, September 27, 2007 -- The show that rips the lid off politics and puts the Oval office in the sandbox will pick-up where Lil' Dubya left off � terrorizing the White House. COMEDY CENTRAL has ordered a second season of the popular animated hit show, "Lil' Bush," it was announced today by Lauren Corrao, executive vice president, original programming and development, COMEDY CENTARL. The new season is set to premiere in spring 2008 with ten new episodes.

"We couldn't be more excited with the return of these pint-sized politicians," said Corrao. "The ratings success along with the timely subject matter makes this show a natural fit for the COMEDY CENTRAL spring line-up."

"I'm thrilled the show has been picked up," said "Lil' Bush" creator and executive producer Donick Cary. "I'm sorry it had to happen in the Minneapolis airport bathroom, but if that's the way Doug Herzog wants to run his company it's cool with me."

Premiering on June 13, "Lil' Bush" averaged over 1.5 million viewers per premiere episode. In its timeslot (Wednesdays, 10:30-11:00 p.m.), "Lil' Bush" was the #1 show in all of television among men 18-24 and was the #1 show among men 18-34 on cable.

"Lil' Bush" presents Dubya as the animated future president, along with his pals Lil' Condi, Lil' Rummy (voiced by Iggy Pop), Lil' Cheney and Lil' Jeb. Hiding out from Bar and George Sr., these precocious pre-pubescents terrorize the White House and solve the world's problems before bedtime. Whether he's squaring off against schoolyard rivals like Lil' Kim Jong Il, taking a field trip to Iraq, or torturing the lunch-ladies into serving all-American hot dogs everyday, Lil' Bush and the gang are just playing politics.

During the inaugural season viewers got a chance to see Lil' Bush and Tony Blair become cheerleaders, the Lil' Gang unleash weapons of mass destruction and Lil' Bush make a statement with his Aquaman underpants while facing off against Lil' Kim Jong Il. There was also a panty raid against an Al Qaeda Training Camp and an attempt to speed up global warming.

Characters featured during season one included Lil' Bill Clinton, Lil' Hillary Clinton, Lil' Al Gore, Lil' Barack Obama, Lil' John McCain, Lil' Nancy Pelosi and Lil' John Kerry, among others. In addition to Iggy Pop's reoccurring role as Lil' Rummy, The Foo Fighters and Anthony Kiedis and Flea from The Red Hot Chili Peppers appeared as themselves, along with cameos by musicians Jeff Tweedy (as "God") and Frank Black (as "Satan").

"Lil' Bush" comes from creator and executive producer Donick Cary, ("The Simpsons," "The Late Show with David Letterman") and co-executive producer, Jay Karas, while Zoe Friedman is the executive in charge of production at COMEDY CENTRAL. Animation is done by Sugarshack Animation.

Originally made as animated shorts for Amp'd Mobile, the mobisodes quickly developed a cult following and were picked up by COMEDY CENTRAL, making "Lil' Bush" the first show to make the transition from mobisode to television series.

COMEDY CENTRAL, the only all-comedy network, currently is seen in more than 91 million homes nationwide.
