"Fans constantly ask us when new online content is coming and we're really excited to announce it's finally here," said Key and Peele.
The Peabody(R) Award-winning and twelve-time Emmy(R) Award-nominated series, featuring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, has become a true multiplatform phenomenon and boasts over a billion streams across multiple digital platforms. The site will showcase fan-favorite characters like Meegan and Andre, Mr. Garvey, the substitute teacher, Wendell and the Valets along with additional beloved personalities.
"Key & Peele" features Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who are best known for their impressive ability for improv, celebrity impressions and conjuring up original characters. The show utilizes filmed sketches to examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, from two men used to being on the outside looking in. Whether it's satirizing the President, black Republicans, or taking on religion, "Key & Peele" showcases their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.
Credits for the series include Key, Peele, Jay Martel, Ian Roberts, Peter Principato and Joel Zadak as Executive Producers. It was directed by Peter Atencio who was also co-executive producer.
