COMEDY CENTRAL(R) GREENLIGHTS CHRIS KELLY AND SARAH SCHNEIDER SERIES THE OTHER TWO FROM LORNE MICHAELS' BROADWAY VIDEO

Created by, Written by and Executive Produced by Kelly and Schneider, The Other Two Stars Drew Tarver and Heléne Yorke

Half-hour, Scripted Series also Features Molly Shannon and Ken Marino and Introduces Case Walker as ChaseDreams

NEW YORK, October 17, 2017 - Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider are moving to prime time as Comedy Central has ordered the Broadway Video scripted series The Other Two from the award-winning former co-head writers of Saturday Night Live, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central. Lorne Michaels will serve as one of the series' executive producers.

Created by, written by and executive produced by Kelly and Schneider, who recently departed Saturday Night Live after serving as co-head writers during one of the series' most memorable seasons, The Other Two stars Drew Tarver (Bajillion Dollar Propertie$) as a 29-year-old aspiring actor wondering why he can't get better auditions than "Man At Party Who Smells Fart," and Heléne Yorke (Masters of Sex, High Maintenance) as his 30-year-old sister, and former professional child dancer, Brooke, who aspires to be anything other than what she is right now. As the two siblings work towards finding themselves, they must also confront the dueling emotions of envy and pride brought on by the overnight internet fame of their younger brother, 12-year-old Chase, played by real-life muscal.ly sensation Case Walker. The Other Two will also feature Molly Shannon, who plays the siblings' Hollywood-ready mother, and Ken Marino (Party Down), as ChaseDream's newly-hired manager.

Said Alterman, "We are excited for our first scripted show about family, mostly because we did research and discovered that nearly 100% of our audience comes from them. Plus, hearing Chris and Sarah's names called out so much at the Emmys didn't hurt."

Said Kelly and Schneider, "We are so excited to make this show with Comedy Central, our incredible cast, and our joint biological father Lorne Michaels, who will be making a cameo in at least one episode, and is finding that out right now."

Promoted last year to co-head writers, Kelly and Schneider had been writers for Saturday Night Live since 2011. In addition to his time at Saturday Night Live, Kelly has written for Comedy Central's Broad City and also wrote and directed the feature film, Other People, which earned 2017 Indie Spirit Award nominations for best first feature and best screenplay (and earned a Spirit Award for star Molly Shannon). Schneider has written for the Netflix series Master of None and, prior to her time at Saturday Night Live, was a writer and actress for CollegeHumor Originals.

The Other Two is created by, written by and executive produced by Kelly and Schneider. Kelly, who directed the pilot, will also direct episodes for the series. In addition to Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer from Broadway Video will serve as an executive producer. Broadway Video's Hilary Marx will be a co-executive producer with Kaylani Esparza serving as co-producer. The series will be also be executive produced by Tony Hernandez of Jax Media.
