NEW YORK, Monday, May 21, 2007 -- In COMEDY CENTRAL's new original series, "Lil' Bush," Dubya is presented as the animated future president, along with his pals Lil' Condi, Lil' Rummy (voiced by Iggy Pop), Lil' Cheney and Lil� Jeb. Hiding out from Bar and George Sr., these precocious prepubescents are terrorizing the White House and solving the world's problems before bedtime. Lil' Bush premieres on Wednesday, June 13 at 10:30-11:00 p.m., only on COMEDY CENTRAL.

COMEDY CENTRAL's doing a heckuva job on the President. Whether he's squaring off against schoolyard rivals like Lil' Kim Jong Il, taking a field trip to Iraq, or torturing the lunch-ladies into serving all-American hot dogs everyday, Lil' Bush and the gang are just playing politics. We�ll watch with wonder as they grow up to be real deciders. If you're looking for laughs -- mission accomplished!

This season on the show, Lil� Bush and Tony Blair become cheerleaders, the Lil' gang unleashes weapons of mass destruction and Lil' Bush makes a statement with his Aquaman underpants while facing off against Lil� Kim Jong Il. Viewers will also get a chance to see the Lil� gang launch a panty raid against an Al Qaeda Training Camp and the Lil' band attempt to convince the world that global warming is cool.

Iggy Pop, best known for his band Iggy and the Stooges, has joined the cast as the voice of Lil' Bush's confidant, "Lil' Rummy." Rummy is a classic schoolyard bully with a few charming psychopathic quirks. Iggy will be joined in later episodes by guest voices from the music world including Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters, Frank Black from the Pixies, Jeff Tweedy from Wilco and the Red Hot Chili Peppers as themselves.

Originally made as animated shorts for Amp'd Mobile, the mobisodes quickly developed a cult following and were picked up by COMEDY CENTRAL, making "Lil' Bush" the first show to make the transition from mobisode to television series. Each COMEDY CENTRAL episode will be composed of two shorts (each short is ten and a half minutes in length) to create a half-hour time block.

"Lil' Bush" comes from creator and executive producer Donick Cary, ("The Simpsons," "The Late Show with David Letterman") and co-executive producer, Jay Karas. Seth Cummings and Peter Adderton from Amp'd Mobile also serve as executive producers, while Zoe Friedman and David Koga are the executives in charge of production at COMEDY CENTRAL. Animation is being done by Sugarshack Animation.
