Vampires and Zombies Return to COMEDY CENTRAL(R)! Animated Series 'Ugly Americans' Receives Order for Additional Episodes to Premiere in October

Series Developed By David M. Stern (Producer/Writer "The Simpsons") And Created By Devin Clark With Main Characters Voiced By Natasha Leggero, Kurt Metzger, Larry Murphy, Matt Oberg, Randy Pearlstein And Michael-Leon Wooley

NEW YORK, April 21 -- COMEDY CENTRAL has ordered additional episodes of the animated comedy series "Ugly Americans," it was announced today by Kent Alterman, head of original programming and development, COMEDY CENTRAL. The 7 additional episodes of "Ugly Americans" will premiere this October.

"Ugly Americans" premiered on March 17 with 2.1 million total viewers and has averaged 2 million total viewers over the course of its first season, which has seen the series become the second most-watched show in all television on Wednesday nights among Men 18-24, behind only its lead-in, "South Park."

"Once you add Zombies, Demons and Werewolves into the New York City melting pot, you have something for everyone," said Alterman. "'Ugly Americans' is the feel good show for our depraved audience."

"The chance to delve further into this insane world with more episodes is a nightmare come true. But in a really, really good way," said David Stern, executive producer, "Ugly Americans."

Take the Big Apple, add every horrifying beast, science-fiction freak and fantasy faerie, shake thoroughly and you've got "Ugly Americans." The series follows Mark Lilly (voiced by Matt Oberg), a social worker at the "Department of Integration," as he helps new citizens, both human and "other," adapt to hectic life in New York City. There are easier tasks than weaning vampires off blood, socializing land-whales and housebreaking werewolves, but Mark is up to the challenge. Between his stressful job, a zombie roommate and a demon girlfriend, Mark's lucky if he can sneak in a few minutes of sleep. But who can sleep when there's a drop-dead gorgeous mermaid sitting at the bar? Fans can follow "Ugly Americans" on Facebook.

In addition to Mark Lilly, the "Ugly Americans" cast features Randall Skeffington, Mark's zombie roommate (voiced by Kurt Metzger), Callie Maggotbone, Mark's demon boss and office fling (voiced by Natasha Leggero), Leonard Powers, an aging drunken wizard (voiced by Randy Pearlstein), Twayne, a terrorizing demonic bureaucrat (voiced by Michael-Leon Wooley) and Lt. Grimes (voiced by Larry Murphy), a law-enforcement officer who despises non-humans. Additional characters are voiced by Devin Clark, Pete Holmes and Julie Klausner.
