"MADtv" GEARS UP FOR "LUCKY" NUMBER 13TH SEASON WITH A 300TH EPISODE MILESTONE AND ADDS THREE NEW MEMBERS TO THE ENSEMBLE CAST

Next season on MADtv, Johnny Sanchez III, Anjelah N. Johnson and Dan Oster join the returning ensemble, and the late-night series will celebrate its 300th episode milestone Saturday, Nov. 17 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT) on FOX. The 13th season of the Emmy-nominated series, best known for its music, film and television parodies, premieres Saturday, Sept. 15 (11:00 PM-Midnight ET/PT).

"MADtv enters Season 13 with the goal of setting the template for the next 13," said executive producer David Salzman. "Our plan is to preserve the fast-paced, cutting-edge pop culture parodies and audience-favorite characters while adding more topicality, fresh new elements and a real theater setting."

Sanchez, Johnson and Oster join the returning cast, which includes Michael McDonald, Bobby Lee, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Nicole Parker, Arden Myrin and Crista Flanagan.

Sanchez starred in his own half-hour special on Comedy Central and continues to travel the country as a headlining stand-up comic. Johnson's credits include numerous television and film appearances and traveling overseas to perform for the troops in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Oster has spent over two years in Amsterdam with famed improv/sketch comedy group Boom Chicago, which was also home to current MADtv cast members Peele and Parker.

Among behind-the-scenes changes planned for Season 13, the show will be taped at the famed Henry Fonda Music Box Theater in Hollywood, which will enhance its live-event feeling. In addition, head writer John Crane and director Bruce Leddy are the new show runners, joining David Salzman and Quincy Jones as executive producers.

MADtv is a Quincy Jones, David Salzman production.
