The Whitest Kids U' Know

The Whitest Kids U' Know, the award-winning debauched comedy troupe, is coming back to IFC with 10 all-new 30-minute scripted episodes, beginning Friday, June 11 at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

The raucous and peculiar talents of Trevor, Zach, Sam, Darren and Timmy return for a new season, when they take on everything from social mores and conspiracy theories to celebrity culture and, yes, bodily functions. This summer, The Whitest Kids' will continue to cross the line of propriety with segments that include Charles Manson on a home-shopping channel and Osama Bin Laden as a game show host. Fans of Whitest Kids' musical parodies can sing along to the infectious "Sex Robot": all machine, all love, all the time.

The Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town

For the first time on U.S. television since the end of their cult series, all five original The Kids in the Hall (Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson) reunite in this original, eight-episode "gothic comic murder mystery." The Kids play nearly all of the 20 new characters in their trademark gender-bending style, including The Grim Reaper himself. Co-written by all five Kids, the story of Death Comes to Town unfolds in an all-new serialized format different from their previous sketch work on television. Premieres Friday, August 20 at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret - Premiering October 2010

Created by, written by, and starring David Cross (Arrested Development), The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret follows the hilarious misadventures of an American pathological liar (Cross) as he bluffs his way into a senior marketing job in the London office for Thundermuscle, an "awesome new energy drink." The new original comedy series reunites Cross with his Arrested Development co-star, Will Arnett, in their first project together since the ground-breaking sitcom ended on Fox in 2006. Special guest appearances by Spike Jonze (Where the Wild Things Are) and Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) add more layers to the comedic misfortunes.
