Atom.com and COMEDY CENTRAL Greenlight New Web Series and TV Pilot Presentation 'The Fuzz,' from Waverly Films

New Development Deal Follows The Success Of The First Atom-Waverly Collaboration, "Stickman Exodus," Winner Of 2009 Webby Award For Best Animation

NEW YORK, May 8 -- COMEDY CENTRAL and its digital comedy network, Atom.com, announced today they are co-funding the new Web series "The Fuzz," from 2009 double Webby Award-winner, Waverly Films.

"The Fuzz," a procedural cop series in which humans and puppets join forces to crack down on criminals in a corrupt city, has been greenlit for five Webisodes that will premiere on Atom.com later this year. COMEDY CENTRAL will work closely with both Atom.com and Waverly Films to develop the series as a pilot for potential on-air distribution.

This new deal extends Atom.com's successful partnership with Waverly Films. It was announced earlier this week that the first collaboration "Stickman Exodus," earned two 2009 Webby Awards for Best Animation - for both the People's Voice Award ( determined by online voting) and the Webby Award (determined by an illustrious panel of industry judges). "Stickman Exodus," a series featuring a ragtag band of stick figures struggling to reach the "promised page" in a high school kid's notebook, debuted on Atom.com in June 2008 and has exceeded 500,000 plays to date. The Web series was distributed widely to consumers across Atom's multiplatform distribution network, including the "Atom TV" series on COMEDY CENTRAL, mobile phone partners including Verizon and AT&T and other leading Internet destinations including iTunes, AOL, Dailymotion, xBox Live and many more.

Atom.com, a division of Viacom Inc.'s (NYSE: VIA and VIA.B) MTV Networks, is a digital comedy network for young men that reaches millions of consumers each month on the Atom.com Web site and millions more through multiplatform distribution on television, mobile phones and the Internet. Atom.com's programming lineup features daily new releases of original comedy including animation, live-action narrative, topical videos, sketch comedies and spoofs. The site also offers a library of thousands of comedy productions previously developed by, licensed by and uploaded to AtomFilms and COMEDY CENTRAL. Drawing on a strategic partnership with COMEDY CENTRAL and its own 10-year history of online video innovation and leadership (formerly as AtomFilms), Atom.com delivers Web comedy like nobody else.

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. COMEDY CENTRAL's Internet address is www.comedycentral.com.

Waverly Films is a group of filmmakers from Brooklyn. They write, direct, produce and act in commercials, music videos, TV shows and funny clips on the internet.
