'Tosh.0's' Daniel Tosh to EP New Animated Series on Comedy Central
Comedy Central is going forward on an animated series from executive producers Tosh.0’s Daniel Tosh and comedians Waco O’Guin and Roger Black titled Brickleberry.
The series follows a group of ne’er-do-well forest rangers who are facing the shut down of their National Park when a new ranger arrives to help transform them and save the park.
The network has picked the series up for a 10-episode order. Brickleberry starts production this fall and premieres in 2012.
The series is co-produced by Fox 21 and Comedy Central. Written by O’Guin and Black (Stankervision), Tosh will executive produce and voice one of the characters.
Tosh has hosted his video clip show, Tosh.0, on Comedy Central since June of 2009.
