Zombies, Werewolves and Vampires Reunite! COMEDY CENTRAL(R) Renews Animated Series "Ugly Americans" for a Second Season to Debut June 2011

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, Dec. 15, 2010 -- COMEDY CENTRAL has renewed the animated comedy series "Ugly Americans" for a second season, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, head of original programming and development, COMEDY CENTRAL. The 14-episode new season of "Ugly Americans" will premiere in June 2011.

"Ugly Americans" premiered on March 17, 2010 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."

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, Mike O'Gorman, Pete Holmes and Julie Klausner.

David M. Stern, series developer and executive producer, began his career writing for "The Wonder Years" during its first three seasons. He went on to serve as a producer on "The Simpsons" during its first four seasons where he wrote many memorable episodes. Stern was a co-executive producer on the premiere season of the USA hit series 'Monk," as well as a co-executive producer on the Fox series "Oliver Beene."

Series-creator Devin Clark has been involved with a broad range of television projects including work with HBO, MTV, Nickelodeon, TCM and The Cartoon Network, applying his design and narrative skills to everything from network graphics to traditional cartoons. His films and animation have been featured in Stash magazine, Animation Block Party, Rooftop Films, Ottawa Film Festival, Platform and Atom Films.

David M. Stern and Daniel Powell are the executive producers of "Ugly Americans." Aaron Augenblick and Richard Ferguson-Hull serve as animation directors. Lisa Leingang is the executive in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
