Fairview and Washingtonia build on Comedy Central's long history of political satire and further expand MTV Entertainment's commitment to Adult Animation

Produced by CBS Studios, Fairview and Washingtonia to premiere this fall

New York, NY, September 21, 2021 - On the heels of MTV Entertainment Studios new deal with Trey Parker and Matt Stone, it continues to double down on adult animation with the announcement today of two new projects slated to air on Comedy Central that build on CC's long legacy of political satire:

Fairview, a weekly, hyper-topical, half-hour, eight episode series and Washingtonia, an animated feature.

Fairview and Washingtonia, produced by CBS Studios, will be in partnership with the talented team of Stephen Colbert Presents Tooning Out the News (Paramount+), recently Emmy-nominated for Outstanding Short Form Comedy, Drama Or Variety Series and Our Cartoon President (Showtime).

"I am so excited to participate in this press release, but I should mention that my deal for Fairview and Washingtonia is not yet closed," said Colbert. "The main sticking point is money. I want more and they don't want me to have more. I look forward to airing these projects as soon as this issue is resolved."

"As we continue to double down on adult animation, we couldn't be more thrilled to bring Fairview and Washingtonia to Comedy Central in partnership with Stephen and our friends at CBS Studios," said Nina Diaz, President of Content & CCO, MTVE and Chief Creative Officer Unscripted & Animation, Paramount+. "These two irreverent satires fit squarely into the Comedy Central brand - hilarious, sophisticated, and, of course, with politics at the center of it all."

Fairview - a weekly, hyper-topical, half-hour adult animated series about how national politics causes wild small town drama in the Natty Light-chugging, grocery store parking lot-fighting, public urinating town of Fairview through the lens of its sloppy party girl turned pragmatic mayor Kelly Sampson. The show is created and executive produced by RJ Fried with Stephen Colbert, Chris Licht, Tim Luecke, Kim Gamble, Mike Leech and Zach Smilovitz as executive producers. Grant Gish is the Executive Producer with Co-Executive Producer Sachi Ezura and Supervising Producer Michael Stanger for MTV Entertainment Group.

Washingtonia - an animated feature about a rising political star and his deeply incompetent staff navigating the way deeper incompetence of Washington. Created and executive produced by RJ Fried with Stephen Colbert, Chris Licht, Mike Leech, Tim Luecke and Zach Smilovitz as executive producers. Grant Gish is the Executive Producer with Co-Executive Producer Sachi Ezura and Supervising Producer Michael Stanger for MTV Entertainment Group.

With Fairview and Washingtonia, these mark the second and third projects respectively, for Comedy Central with Stephen Colbert following the recently announced, Tha God's Honest Truth with Charlamagne Tha God, a weekly half hour late-night show which features Charlamagne bringing his influential, opinionated, thought-provoking perspective to late night. Tha God's Honest Truth will debut Friday, September 17 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.

Upcoming animation from MTV Entertainment also includes the highly anticipated Untitled Beavis & Butt-head Movie from Emmy(R) Award-winning Mike Judge who reimagines MTV's seminal, Gen X-defining Beavis and Butt-Head who return for another movie adventure to be released on Paramount+ to kick-off the new series on Comedy Central.

Fairview and Washingtonia add to the CBS Studios growing slate of animated series including The Harper House, Star Trek: Lower Decks, Star Trek: Prodigy and Stephen Colbert Presents Tooning Out the News.
