SHOWTIME PREMIERES THE NEXT GREAT AMERICAN SKETCH COMEDY SERIES -- TRACEY ULLMAN'S STATE OF THE UNION MARCH 30th AT 10:00 PM ET/PT

LOS ANGELES, CA � (January 16, 2008) -- Emmy� Award-winner Tracey Ullman brings her signature brand of spot-on impersonation and comic timing to TRACEY ULLMAN'S STATE OF THE UNION, a new sketch comedy series that takes a satirical look at a day in the life of America. The limited series of five half-hour episodes will premiere on SHOWTIME, March 30th at 10:00 PM ET/PT, immediately after the second season premiere of THE TUDORS in its new time slot at 9:00PM ET/PT.

"I have always loved Tracey Ullman ever since I was a young development executive at Fox when she was doing the original �Tracey Ullman Show,'" says Robert Greenblatt, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. "She is a one-of-a-kind comedienne and sketch comedy performer, a true artist. We are so proud to bring her to SHOWTIME in a completely new show that will again showcase what she does best, and in this case, she will be looking at the wide cross-section of Americans and both celebrating us and sending us up."

TRACEY ULLMAN'S STATE OF THE UNION will feature a kaleidoscope of original characters and impersonations in a wide collection of irreverent and hilarious skits that range from sardonic parody and social satire to Bollywood musicals. The limited series is a snapshot of modern day America as seen through the brilliant comedic mind of Tracey Ullman. Tracey tackles the country's celebrity-obsessed, 24- hour news culture by portraying a variety of characters from celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Ren�e Zellweger, Dina Lohan, Tony Sirico and David Beckham to politicians and pundits like Nancy Pelosi and Arianna Huffington. Additionally, Ullman has created a new line-up of original characters that reflect a cross-section of American society from an Indian pharmacist to a homeless woman without health insurance to a soldier on temporary leave from Iraq.

Allan McKeown and Tracey Ullman serve as executive producers for the series. Bruce Wagner and Gail Parent serve as producers. The series is produced by Shawn Wilts and Troy Miller serves as director.
