[via press release from Comedy Central]

COMEDY CENTRAL� ANNOUNCES THE PRODUCTION OF "THE DRAWN TOGETHER MOVIE: THE MOVIE!" THE FIRST FILM BASED ON THE CULT ANIMATED SERIES "DRAWN TOGETHER"

"The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!," Panel At Comic-Con In San Diego On Thursday, July 23 From 7:00-8:00 P.M. PT With Creators, Writers And Executive Producers Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser And Stars Cree Summer (Foxxy Love), James Arnold Taylor (Wooldoor Sockbat; The Jew Producer), Abbey McBride (Ling-Ling), Jess Harnell (Captain Hero) and Tara Strong (Toot Braunstein and Princess Clara)

NEW YORK, July 22, 2009 -- From the warped minds of creators, writers and executive producers Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser, comes the most reprehensible and most guilty-pleasure movie of all time�"The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!," it was announced today by Lauren Corrao, president, original programming and development, COMEDY CENTRAL. Currently in production, the first animated film based on the "Drawn Together" series will be released by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment in March 2010.

"'Drawn Together's' reunion with COMEDY CENTRAL is like marrying an old ex-girlfriend," said Silverstein and Jeser. "I mean, are we doing this because we love each other and are destined to be together? Or is it because neither one of us could do any better? As is often the case, it's probably both."

"Matt and Dave are a creatively talented duo with a twisted sensibility that is completely uninhibited and admirable," said Corrao. "Without the constraints of producing for basic cable, this movie will showcase their chops the way fans of the show have been waiting for."

"The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!" stars the incorrigible cast of the most hilarious animated reality show ever to air on basic cable. When the mystery-solving musician, Foxxy, notices she and her fellow housemates can curse without being bleeped - something they�ve never been able to do before - they realize that their show has been cancelled. Determined to get back on the air, they venture to such far-off lands as Bedrock, a Fairy Tale Village and the fantastical Make-a-Point Land, all the while outrunning their enemies who are hell bent on keeping them off the air and are prepared to use any means necessary to do so.

"The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!" is bigger, badder and uncensored and certainly lives up to its tainted heritage and provides the audience with a not-so-healthy heaping of what everyone has come to know and secretly love from the show. Namely, copious amounts of drunken-revelry, taboo-busting and cartoon-on-cartoon violence.

A "The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie!" panel will be held at Comic-Con in San Diego on Thursday, July 23 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. PT in room 6BCF. Join Silverstein, Jeser and stars Cree Summer (Foxxy Love, "Transformers: Animated"), James Arnold Taylor (Wooldoor Sockbat/The Jew Producer; "Star Wars: The Clone Wars"), Abbey McBride (Ling-Ling), Jess Harnell (Captain Hero) and Tara Strong (Toot Braunstein and Princess Clara) as they discuss their new film and host a round table discussion on the politics of religion in the workplace and where to get a decent sandwich.

"Drawn Together" premiered on the network in October 2004 and aired for three seasons and 36 episodes. The series presented a world where cartoon characters from various genres of animation were brought together to live under one roof. The characters left their animated "reality" and entered a new world where their cartoon universes collide with a bang, combining different styles of animation and different personalities, all "drawn together." This was COMEDY CENTRAL's first original animated series that was drawn traditionally and in 2-D digital ink and paint animation.

The eight stars/housemates represent iconic archetypes from the world of animation and include: "Captain Hero," a not-so-moral do-gooder reminiscent of the Saturday morning TV super heroes of the 70's; "Clara," a 20-year-old sweet and naive fairy-tale princess; "Toot Braunstein," a black-and-white pudgy heart throb from the 20's; "Foxxy Love," a sexy mystery-solving musician; "Spanky Ham," a foul-mouthed Internet download pig; "Ling-Ling," an adorable Asian trading card mini-monster; "Wooldoor-Sockbat," a wacky Saturday morning whatchamacallit; and "Xandir," a strong young gay video game warrior.
