COMEDY CENTRAL ACQUIRES BOJACK HORSEMAN BECOMING EXCLUSIVE LINEAR TELEVISION HOME TO THE HIT ANIMATED SERIES

SEASON ONE TO PREMIERE SEPTEMBER 26 AT 10:30 P.M. ET/PT ON COMEDY CENTRAL IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE SEASON 22 PREMIERE OF SOUTH PARK

NEW YORK, July 26, 2018 - Comedy Central has secured the exclusive linear television rights to all current seasons of the Netflix original series BoJack Horseman, making the #1 brand in comedy the only place to watch the hit animated series on linear TV. Season One of The Tornante Company-produced series will make its linear television premiere on Comedy Central this fall immediately following the Season 22 debut of South Park. Select episodes will be available to stream on cc.com and the CC App. The deal was negotiated by Lionsgate-owned distributor Debmar-Mercury and Viacom Program Acquisitions Group.

"Comedy Central has a long history of using potent satire to help make sense of trying times, so BoJack Horseman is a perfect fit in our lineup," said Tanya Giles, General Manager, Comedy Central. "We're thrilled to be the first to put BoJack on linear TV, and who better than an animated horse to teach us a thing or two about humanity? Straight from the horse's mouth."

"BoJack Horseman has been a groundbreaking show, defining the best in adult animated comedy just as South Park was before it," said Michael Eisner, founder of The Tornante Company. "It is very fitting that the two shows will air back-to-back on Comedy Central."

The Emmy Award-nominated and critically acclaimed BoJack Horseman premiered on Netflix in August 2014 and will debut its fifth season on September 14. The series revolves around the titular character (voiced by Will Arnett), a legendary but fatally flawed former 90's sitcom star from the family-favorite sitcom Horsin' Around, who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. Now, in the presence of his human sidekick Todd (Aaron Paul) and his feline agent and ex-paramour Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), BoJack is primed for his comeback. The series also stars Alison Brie and Paul F. Tompkins.

BoJack Horseman was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg. The series is executive produced by Bob-Waksberg, Steven A. Cohen and Noel Bright. Will Arnett and Aaron Paul also serve as executive producers. BoJack was designed by graphic artist Lisa Hanawalt and animated by ShadowMachine. The series is a Tornante Production, brought to life by Michael Eisner's The Tornante Company.
