"NEWSREADERS" GOES HARD IN SEASON TWO - LIKE, REALLY HARD

New Episodes of the Comedy Series Premiere Thursday, October 23rd at Midnight ET/PT on Adult Swim

Adult Swim announced today the return of Newsreaders, the irreverent television newsmagazine series from the creative team behind the Emmy(R)-award winning Childrens Hospital. Premiering Thursday, October 23rd at Midnight (ET/PT), season two features returning cast members Alison Becker, Beth Dover, Dannah Phirman, and Ray Wise, with new host Alan Tudyk.

Season two of Newsreaders is filled with exciting guest stars including Scott Adsit, Malin Akerman, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jenna Fischer, Rob Huebel, Tom Lennon, Randall Park, Danny Pudi, Rob Riggle, Martin Starr, and James Urbaniak, with David Hasselhoff kicking things off in the premiere episode.

The series is created and executive produced by Emmy(R)-winning executive producers Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), Jonathan Stern (Childrens Hospital, Burning Love) and David Wain (Role Models, Wet Hot American Summer), with Emmy(R)-winning producer Jim Margolis (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) serving as show runner and executive producer.

Newsreaders, which satirizes the television newsmagazine format, will continue to bring viewers inspiring and thought-provoking stories that are neither of those things. From motor-boating dads to alien abductions, "GoNadz" for your vehicle to go-to cures for jellyfish stings, Newsreaders has the stories that literally will change the face of America. Literally.

The series is produced by Abominable Pictures and Studio 2.0, and is distributed by Warner Bros. Television.
