As previously announced, the Atom Web series "Five-On," which aired on season one of "Atom TV", has been picked up by COMEDY CENTRAL and will premiere on March 17 as the highly-anticipated on-air series "Ugly Americans." In addition to that hit from creator Devin Clark, the first two seasons of Atom TV featured content from notable comedy talent including Andy Dick, A.D. Miles, Nick Thune, Dan Levy, Bryan Tucker, Waverly Films, Team Tiger Awesome, Dutch West, Jason Nash, The Landline; award-winning animation series such as Webby winner "Stickman Exodus," a special episode of Lucasfilm-endorsed "Star Wars" fan movies, and a weekly showcase for uploaded videos voted onto the show by Atom.com site users.
