RORY ALBANESE TAPPED AS AN EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF "THE MINORITY REPORT WITH LARRY WILMORE"

Former Executive Producer of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" Joins Jon Stewart and Larry Wilmore as Executive Producers

NEW YORK, July 16, 2014 - Rory Albanese has been named an Executive Producer of Comedy Central's next great late night franchise "The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore." Previously, Albanese was Executive Producer of "The Daily Show" from 2009-2013 and held various posts during his 14 year tenure. Hosted by Emmy(R) Award-winning Larry Wilmore, "The Minority Report" will be a comedic look at news, current events and pop culture from unique perspectives not typically on display in late night television. "The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore" was created by Jon Stewart and will be produced by Stewart's Busboy Productions with Stewart, Wilmore and Albanese serving as Executive Producers.

Continuing in Comedy Central's tradition of producing groundbreaking late night formats, "The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore" will provide viewers with a distinct point of view and comedic take on the day's news from a perspective largely missing in the current late night landscape. Hosted by Larry Wilmore, the series will feature a diverse panel of voices currently underrepresented in comedy and television. More details will be revealed at a later date.

Albanese is repped by CAA, Matt Ochacher at NWE and Jon Moonves.
