DESCRIPTION: (from Comedy Central's press release, June 2009) BFF's or worst enemies? Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter banter and bicker in their new COMEDY CENTRAL series "Michael & Michael Have Issues" debuting Wednesday, July 15 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. "Michael & Michael Have Issues" stars Black and Showalter in a new twist on narrative and sketch comedies that features the long-time comedic partners as the hosts of their own fictitious sketch show. In the seven episode series, sketches will be interspersed throughout the narrative thread of each episode. Behind-the-scenes of the show-within-a-show, viewers will get a first hand look at issues, both big (in an attempt to broaden their appeal, the guys turn their show into a frat house spectacle) and small (the two Michaels fight over the approval of a teenage intern writing an article about them for his high school newspaper) that the two misguided stars wrestle with as they confront their own issues of insecurity and jealousy as each attempts to undermine the other. Other issues in the series include roommate rivalry when the "Michaels" secure a college gig, playing Cupid for an unlucky-in-love co-worker and what birthday gift to give the boss who has everything.
