Eight-part Adam Devine’s House Party will look at 24 up-and-coming comics, with the UK’s Avalon Television attached to produce. Devine presents the show and will exec produce along with Avalon’s Jon Thoday, Richard Turner-Allen, David Martin, Isaac Horne and fellow Workaholics star Kyle Newacheck, who will also direct.
Devine’s Comedy Central sitcom Workaholics is currently in its third season and follows three friends that refuse to grow up and spend time partying and pulling pranks on each other.
“I don’t know how I convinced Comedy Central to give me another show, a Hollywood mansion and a paycheck for hanging out with my friends,” said Devine. “I hope they have a good lawyer and the fire department on speed dial.”
“It’s hard to imagine what could go wrong by giving Adam so much money and turning him loose in a mansion to throw a house party, but we are sure to find out,” said Kent Alterman, president, content development and original programming, Comedy Central.
