CBS STUDIOS ANNOUNCES MULTI-YEAR FIRST-LOOK AGREEMENT WITH STEPHEN COLBERT'S "SPARTINA PRODUCTIONS"

Stephen Colbert, star of the top-rated THE LATE SHOW with STEPHEN COLBERT, has entered a three-year first-look deal with CBS Studios. Under the new agreement, the Studio has the first-look rights to produce all television and streaming content created and developed by Spartina Productions.

Evelyn McGee Colbert, Colbert's wife, will be a principal in the company, as will THE LATE SHOW executive producers, Chris Licht and Tom Purcell.

In addition to starring in and executive producing the Peabody and Emmy Award-winning #1 late night show, Colbert also has three additional animated series in production at the Studio: the Emmy-nominated STEPHEN COLBERT PRESENTS TOONING OUT THE NEWS for Paramount+, and FAIRVIEW and WASHINGTONIA for Comedy Central. Additionally, Colbert executive produced the critically lauded "Derek DelGaudio's In & Of Itself" for Hulu. He is also an executive producer on the Comedy Central late-night program "Tha God's Honest Truth with Lenard 'Charlamagne' McKelvey."

Colbert said, "It's great to make things. Making things with CBS has been great. I am grateful that together we're going to make more great things. It's just great."

"CBS is proud to be the creative home for Stephen Colbert at both our Network and Studio," said George Cheeks, President and Chief Executive Officer, CBS. "His ambitions to build this new company and expand his producing repertoire coincide nicely with the growing content opportunities within ViacomCBS, and we're excited to be his partner in the process."

"Stephen has created remarkable content for CBS and several other ViacomCBS divisions," said CBS Studios President David Stapf. "His comedic, social and political acumen are second to none, and his everyman qualities are beloved by critics and audiences alike. We are fortunate that he will be making the Studio his production home for many years to come."

From 2005 to 2014, Colbert hosted "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central, following his eight years as a correspondent on "The Daily Show." "The Report" received two Peabody Awards, two GRAMMY Awards, six Emmy Awards and 37 total Emmy nominations. Colbert took over as host of THE LATE SHOW on Sept. 8, 2015. In addition to THE LATE SHOW and his previously mentioned animated projects, Colbert has authored several New York Times bestselling books.
