Comedy Central has been making moves. The CC network announced today they are renewing their critically acclaimed sophomore sketch series Inside Amy Schumer for a third season. In addition, freshman shows Review, starring Andy Daly, and Triptank have also been picked up for another season.
Comedy Central has also announced that they have ordered two new shows to flesh out their killer line-up. The Natasha Leggero led series Another Period is set to air in 2015. The show follows Leggero and Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel and Oates) as fame-hungry sisters from a wealthy Rhode Islander family for a turn-of-the-century comedy. The pair created the series, co-produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour and Jeremy Konnor (Drunk History).
Joining Another Period in 2015 is the new series, Idiotsitter. Originally one of CC’s digital web-series, this is the second web-series to be turned into a full-fledged TV series behind Ari Shaffir’s This Is Not Happening. The series was co-created by Charlotte Newhouse and Jillian Bell (Workaholics) who star as a woman (Newhouse) who’s been haired to babysit a mega-rich womanchild (Bell) under house arrest. Idiotsitter is also expected to debut in 2015.
CC also announced five new digital series via their CC: Studios label that will join Kurt Braunohler’s previously announced Roustabout, which follows Braunohler’s absurd philanthropic feats including his recent cross-country jet-ski adventure for charity.
