COMEDY CENTRAL(R) to Shoot Two New Pilots 'Ugly Americans' and 'Evan and Gareth Are Trying to Get Laid'

Pilots Feature An Animated Spin-Off Of A comedycentral.com Original And A Scripted Narrative

NEW YORK, Nov. 13 -- COMEDY CENTRAL has commenced production on two new pilots, it was announced today by Lauren Corrao, president, original programming and development, COMEDY CENTRAL. The pilots are "Ugly Americans," an animated project about an alternate universe in New York City that is being spun off from the comedycentral.com original series, "5-On" and "Evan and Gareth Are Trying to Get Laid," a scripted narrative about two guys who work at a male advice web site.

"We came to know the creators behind 'Ugly Americans' and 'Evan and Gareth Are Trying To Get Laid' from their work on the Web and feel their creative ideas can carry over to our on-air channel," said Corrao.

Take New York City, add every horrifying beast, science-fiction freak and fantasy faerie, shake thoroughly and you've got "Ugly Americans." The animated series follows Mark Lilly, a social worker at the Department of Immigration, as he helps new citizens both human and "other" adapt to hectic life in the Big Apple. There are easier tasks than weaning vampires from blood, socializing land-whales and housebreaking werewolves, but Mark is up to the challenge. Between his stressful job, a zombie roommate and a demon girlfriend, Mark's lucky if he can sneak in a few minutes of sleep. But who can sleep when there's a drop-dead gorgeous mermaid sitting at the bar? "Ugly Americans" is executive produced by David Stern ("Monk," "The Simpsons") and produced by Devin Clark in New York City. The animation is being handled by Augenblick Studios. Lou Wallach and Dan Powell are the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

"Evan and Gareth Are Trying To Get Laid" stars Evan Mann and Gareth Reynolds, two regular guys who work at thehookup.com -- a male advice web site. They are crash test dummies for the advice they pass along to their readers. In the pilot, Evan questions his career choice after a string of bad dates, but with no Evan, there is no Gareth! Gareth must do everything he can to get Evan out of his funk, including dressing in drag, so his friend can improve his pick-up techniques. "Evan and Gareth Are Trying to Get Laid" is executive produced by Jim Biederman, Mann, Reynolds, Reveille and Conductor and will be shot in New York. Lou Wallach and Monika Zielinska are the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

COMEDY CENTRAL, the only all-comedy network, currently is seen in more than 95 million homes nationwide. COMEDY CENTRAL is owned by, and is a registered trademark of, Comedy Partners, a wholly-owned division of Viacom Inc.'s (NYSE: VIA and VIA.B) MTV Networks.
