Comedy Central has been signing shows left and right. Right after the news that ‘Workaholics’ star Adam DeVine singed an eight-episode deal with the network; HBO Digital series “Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!” is on its way as well.
It was confirmed this morning that Comedy Central will be brining the HBO Digital series “Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!” to the network. Comedy Central has ordered six new episodes, which will no longer be digital shorts, but 30min episodes.
Stevens along with Zach Galifianakis, Mike Gibbons, Dave Rath and Funny or Die are all Executive Producers for the show. The series is a show like a documentary, filming the life of stand-up comic Brody Stevens. In the show Stevens suffers from a mental breakdown, and now must pull his life back together.
The show was originally planned for HBO as a full-on series but never became that in the end. Now Comedy Central has the chance to expand the series into something that fans have been asking for.
