NEW YORK, September 24, 2008 -- Sarah Silverman's world is back and it's better than ever. Join Sarah and the rest of the gang as she discovers marijuana, brings a lawsuit against the country of Mongolia and finds her father she thought was dead. COMEDY CENTRAL's hit series, "The Sarah Silverman Program," premieres on Wednesday, October 8 at 10:30 p.m. A second premiere episode will air on Thursday, October 9 at 10:30 p.m., settling Sarah and the gang into their regular timeslot. (all Times ET/PT

"The Sarah Silverman Program" stars Silverman portraying a character (aptly named Sarah Silverman) whose absurd daily life is told through narrative and an occasional song. In each episode, Sarah falls into unique, unsettling and always hilarious predicaments, with her sister Laura (played by real-life sister Laura Silverman), her nerdy gay neighbors, Brian and Steve (Brian Posehn and Steve Agee) and dim-witted Officer Jay (Jay Johnston) never far from her side.

In the premiere episode, "High, It's Sarah," Sarah gets high for the first time, then leaves herself voicemails imploring her sober self to carry out her stoned inspirations. Some of these thoughts prove to be good ideas, while others definitely don't. Meanwhile, Laura and Jay have relationship trouble when Jay inadvertently lets the world know that he had a "nocturnal emission" as a result of a dream about a local news correspondent. Guest stars Garry Marshall and Missi Pyle come along for the crazy ride.

Sarah Silverman is a three-time Emmy� Award-nominee and recently received her first Emmy for the wildly popular "I'm Fucking Matt Damon" video. Silverman made an impressive splash when the feature-length film version of her stage show, "Jesus is Magic," was met with critical acclaim upon its release in 2005. Silverman garnered rave reviews in the documentary feature "The Aristocrats," in which she co-starred along with 100 of the industry's most prominent comedians. She also starred opposite Jack Black, Mike White and Joan Cusack in Paramount Picture's "The School of Rock," among others. Silverman recently wrapped filming the independent feature "Saint John of Las Vegas" opposite Steve Buscemi and Peter Dinklage.

Laura Silverman is best known for her role in HBO's series, "The Comeback." She also appeared in her sister's film, "Jesus is Magic" and is the voice of Dr. Katz' assistant in "Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist." Brian Posehn is best known for his role in "Just Shoot Me" as well as appearances in "Seinfeld," "Newsradio," and "Everybody Loves Raymond." Steve Agee's credits include "Jesus is Magic" and Bobcat Goldthwait's film, "Sleeping Dogs Lie." Jay Johnston can be seen in the film "Anchorman" and appeared in the HBO television series, "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Mr. Show" and the FOX television series, "Malcolm in the Middle."

"The Sarah Silverman Program" Web site features highlight video clips from every show and a preview video clip each week, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes extras and a daily blog from the show insider, with stories, cast interviews and pictures from every episode. Also showcased are "Sarah Silverman Program" Animations, including brand new episodes of the hilarious and radical original Web series "The Adventures of Steve and Brian," "Fantastimart" and a Cookie Party game, with original voices from the cast.

"The Sarah Silverman Program Season Two: Volume One (Uncensored)" DVD is a completely uncensored two disc-set and will hit stores on Tuesday, October 14. The DVD features over one-hour of bonus material including the cast and creators at 2007's Comic-Con, animated webisodes, behind-the-scenes and audio commentary with the entire cast.

The series is based on an idea by Silverman, Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab (Oscar-nominated "Monster House"). Silverman, Schrab, Heidi Herzon ("Jesus is Magic") and Dan Sterling ("The Daily Show") are the executive producers. Schrab and Sterling also serve as director of some of the episodes. Gary Mann is the executive in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
