"Roustabout" with Kurt Braunohler Available Now on CC.com

Slate Includes Renewals of "Six Guys One Car" and "New Timers," and New Projects from Comics Including Matt Braunger, Rich Fulcher and Sean O'Connor

Two CC:Studios Series, "This Is Not Happening" and "Idiotsitter," Move to Linear

NEW YORK, January 29, 2015 - Six guys, some goats, and an apocalypse, oh my! Comedy Central's in-house multiplatform division CC:Studios kicks off 2015 with a new series premiere, two returning series, and five exciting shows in development, as announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Content Development and Original Programming, Comedy Central. Available now on cc.com is "Roustabout," a comedic travelogue that follows Kurt Braunohler as he jet skis from Chicago to New Orleans to raise money for charity.

"I am sincerely proud of how our team has established CC:Studios as an appealing destination for established and emerging comedy content creators," said Alterman.

The slate includes the renewals of two fan-favorite digital series: "Six Guys One Car," from YouTube stars Dormtainment, and "New Timers," following two low-key friends that remain unchanged and unphased by a post-apocalyptic Brooklyn. New series from CC:Studios include projects featuring Matt Braunger as one of the few remaining white people in America, Sean O'Connor as an awkward blogger, and Rich Fulcher as the host of a show that takes absurd hypotheticals very seriously. CC:Studios also has two series that are moving to the linear channel this year: "This Is Not Happening" and "Idiotsitter," showcasing the department's ability to successfully incubate projects digitally and migrate them to TV.
