Hit Obama/Luther Web Originals Return to cc.com and COMEDY CENTRAL YouTube Channel

NEW YORK, August 21, 2012 - The polls are closed! COMEDY CENTRAL is bringing back the sketch-comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele for a second season of the hit series "Key & Peele" airing Wednesday, September 26 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, following the fall premiere of "South Park." In the new season "Key & Peele" gives viewers no choice but to laugh at their hilarious and lively chemistry as they revive some classic characters from the first season and introduce new, entertaining characters into the mix.

Viewers can look forward to the return of Obama and his anger translator Luther, plus an array of guest stars including Wayne Brady, Kevin Sorbo, Rob Delaney, Billy Dee Williams and Brenda Song. "Key & Peele" continues to tackle issues like race relations in a less than "post-racial" society and focuses on culturally relevant characters such as Steve Jobs and the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.

In the first season, the series premiere pulled in 2.1 million total viewers, making it the biggest COMEDY CENTRAL launch since 2009, and the Obama/Luther video "Obama Loses His SH*T" continues its trajectory with nearly 4 million views to date.

"Key & Peele" features Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who are best known for their impressive ability for improv, celebrity impressions and conjuring up original characters. The show utilizes a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments to examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, from two men used to being on the outside looking in. Whether it's satirizing the President, spoofing musical acts, or introducing Mary Magdalene's pimp, "Key & Peele" showcases their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.

Leading up to the premiere, COMEDY CENTRAL will provide viewers with weekly Web exclusive preview clips viewable on cc.com and the COMEDY CENTRAL YouTube channel. Throughout the season, CC.com will also post weekly, topical sketches featuring Obama and his anger translator, Luther. Viewers can also check out the "Obama Translator" Twitter feed, which will highlight comments from the real President Obama translated onto Twitter by Luther himself. Fans can follow the translations and the conversations @ObamaTranslated. "Key & Peele's" biggest fans, Vandaveon and Mike, will also return to give weekly YouTube reaction videos to each week's episode. COMEDY CENTRAL will continue to support the show online with a "Key & Peele" Facebook fan page and promotions on Twitter and other social media platforms. Previews of upcoming episodes will also be available on cc.com.

"Key & Peele" Season One Blu-ray and DVD will be released by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment on September 25. The Blu-ray and DVD are uncensored and include an outstanding selection of bonus features that include: Live at South Beach Comedy Festival, a behind-the-scenes look at their performance; a poolside interview with Jordan and Keegan in South Beach; and outtakes, audio commentaries, and more from Luther, Obama's anger translator. Beginning on Wednesday, February 1, each episode of "Key & Peele" will be available in HD the day-after-air on iTunes, Xbox, PlayStation, Amazon and Vudu and in SD on Samsung Media Hub.

Credits for the series include Key, Peele, Ian Roberts, Jay Martel and Joel Zadak as Executive Producers. Gary Mann and Monika Zielinska are the Executives in Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
