Comedy Central is all up in the Hannibal Buress game these days. Last year they inked a multi-faceted deal with the comedian which included stand-up and TV deals. From it so far Buress has a new special lined up for release at the end of the month, as well as a great supporting role in Broad City.
Today, Buress made the announcement that the TV series Unemployable has been picked up by the network for 10 episodes. He will serve as the executive producer of the show and if the initial 10 episodes of the series perform well then we’ll have much more Hannibal in our lives, and that’s never a bad thing.
I'm happy to announce that Comedy Central just picked up my series Unemployable for 10 episodes
