Donald Trump Animated Series from Stephen Colbert Coming to Showtime
Hollywood's Most Politically Active Stars

Donald Trump is about to get even more animated, thanks to Stephen Colbert.

Showtime announced on Thursday that they've ordered 10-episodes of a new half-hour animated series produced by the "Late Show" host, starring "two-dimensional avatars of President Donald Trump and the most powerful family in the world."

A press release from the network added that the untitled show will premiere this fall:

Premiering on SHOWTIME this fall, the fresh, cutting-edge comedy will present the truish adventures of Trump’s confidants and bon vivants – family, top associates, heads of government, golf pros and anyone else straying into his orbit – intrepidly exploring their histories and their psyches, revealing insights into what makes them so definitively Trumpian. It's a workplace comedy where the office happens to be oval; it's a character study in search of character, as seen through the eyes of an imaginary documentary crew.

"I know a lot of people wanted to do this, and I'm honored that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world," Colbert joked in a statement. "I've seen some of the footage, and I look forward to sharing the man behind the MAGA."

"Stephen and Chris have an uncanny genius for deconstructing the world of President Trump, and this series opens a new realm for them," David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc., added. "Their vision will produce a comedy that makes waves, gets attention and plays great on our networks, including our streaming service."
