Ben Stiller-produced Comedy Central stand-up series greenlit
Comedy Central is set for a new series called The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail. It’s a new stand up-based show hosted by Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani. Two comedians whose careers are definitely on the upswing. Both Ray and Nanjiani are listed as executive producers, along with others including Ben Stiller and Emily Gordon. Based on the popular Los Angeles-based comedy show The Meltdown, the show will highlight comics who are currently on the rise, showing us their act and taking us behind the scenes so we can get to know them better. It will debut in 2014.
