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."
