(New York, NY) May 18, 2022 – MTV Entertainment Studios today announced a robust slate of more than 90+ greenlights and renewals across Paramount Media Networks and Paramount+ including MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, CMT, Smithsonian Channel and Paramount Network.

With half of the top ten series on cable and a slew of #1 hits from scripted to adult animation to reality – MTVE’s upcoming series, films and specials tap into themes that are resonating with today’s global audiences including family dynamics, love & relationships and social experimentation.

After Yellowstone’s record-breaking season four, MTV Entertainment Studios is ramping up scripted in a big way including a bevy of Taylor Sheridan and 101 Studios’ projects for both Paramount Network and Paramount+. On the network side, in addition to season five of Yellowstone, they have the previously announced 6666, about the merciless endeavor to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and American Tragedy: The Waco Trials, exploring the wide-ranging fallout succeeding the tragic events that took place thirty years ago. On the Paramount+ side will be season two of Mayor of Kingstown that is joined by 1883: The Bass Reeves Story, 1932 (w/t), Tulsa King, Land Man and Lioness.

Building on the success of its adult animation slate and on the heels of celebrating the 25th anniversary of South Park, comes the Andy Samberg-produced comedy series Digman!, Jodie, a spin-off of the iconic Daria franchise with Tracee Ellis Ross in the titular role and both a film and series return of Beavis and Butt-Head.

And, with reality continuing to dominate linear and streaming, MTV and VH1 have several high-profile franchise extensions coming down the pike, such as the wildly popular Shores, which sees two new groups of young people sharing a vacation house together. First up is Buckhead Shore – “The Beverly Hills of the South” – where long time friends reunite for their annual blowout trip, and Jersey Shore 2.0 (w/t), which chronicles a new generation of share house roommates hitting the same famed beaches and boardwalks along the Atlantic to make new memories all summer long. On VH1, the juggernaut franchises return with more seasons of fan-favorite Love & Hip Hop and Black Ink Crew.

“We are honored to be working with some of the biggest movie stars in the world including Jessica Chastain, Harrison Ford, David Oyelowo, Helen Mirren, Jeremy Renner, Sylvester Stallone and Michael Shannon, behind the camera with some of the most groundbreaking and innovative creators, such as Mike Judge, Taylor Sheridan, Nicole Kidman, Angela Bassett, Courtney B. Vance and Matt and Trey to name just a few, as we build new worlds and compelling characters while expanding our #1 hit franchises,” Chris McCarthy, President/CEO of Paramount Media Networks & MTV Entertainment Studios.

“Our robust slate filled with powerhouse franchises and exciting new projects leans into MTVE’s legacy of storytelling that celebrates authentic voices from icons to up and comers, drives culture and makes it pop with audiences around the world,” said Nina L.

COMEDY CENTRAL’S THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH PARTNERS WITH LOLLY LOLLY CERAMICS





COMEDY CENTRAL’S THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH PARTNERS WITH LOLLY LOLLY CERAMICS FOR LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION
Partnership Supports Black-Owned, Women-Run Small Business During Women’s History Month

New York, NY, March 1, 2022 — To help mark Women’s History Month and highlight female creators, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah announced a new collaboration with Lolly Lolly Ceramics, a Black-owned, women-run small business in Milwaukee, WI.

The Lolly Lolly Ceramics x The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Collection will feature three special-edition mug styles set to be released in March. The limited-run collection of 100 mugs were designed by Lolly Lolly founder Lalese Stamps and represent her version of the classic late-night desk mug. Each of the three mug styles will feature Lolly Lolly’s signature inventive handles alongside the Daily Show’s logo on a matte black mug.

For the first three weeks of Women’s History Month, The Daily Show will unveil a new mug design each week on the show. Fans of Lolly Lolly and The Daily Show will then have a chance to purchase their own limited-edition mug on Lolly Lolly’s website on Thursday March 3, 10 and 17 at 11:30pm ET.

Mugs in this collection are inspired by the #100DayProject, where Stamps designed and produced a new black matte stoneware mug for 100 straight days, each with a wildly different handle design inspired by items in everyday life.

“Lolly Lolly Ceramics created three personalized, unconventional and inventive mugs for our show,” said The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Executive Producer/Showrunner Jen Flanz. “We love supporting a Black-owned, women-run business, and we love sharing their artistry with our fans!”

“The Daily Show is always looking beyond our headlines, packages and guest interviews for new, creative ways to highlight underrepresented voices,” said The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Producer Brittany Radocha. “For this partnership, we eyed a classic late-night element —the interview desk mug— as an opportunity to spotlight a really cool and talented creator. We wanted to break the boundaries of what a late-night desk mug might be, and Lalese Stamps’ unique eye brought that vision to life.”

“Never in my life did I imagine that I could pave my own way as creative in business through MUGS,” said Lalese Stamps, founder of Lolly Lolly Ceramics. “My ability to reimagine and push the limits of such a simple household object has catapulted me to this unimaginable realm. I am excited to keep growing and sharing my story. My only hope is to inspire other Black youth to believe in themselves, surround themselves with excellent people and stay true to who they are.”

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah airs weeknights at 11pm ET/PT on Comedy Central.

COMEDY CENTRAL TO LAUNCH AN ALL-NEW ORIGINAL THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR NOAH PODCAST SERIES BEYOND THE SCENES
HOSTED BY CORRESPONDENT ROY WOOD JR. WITH WEEKLY EPISODES ROLLING OUT ON TUESDAY, JULY 20

New York, NY, July 14, 2021 – On the heels of two Emmy® nominations for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Comedy Central today announced it is expanding the Daily Show podcast catalogue with an all-new original series, Beyond the Scenes, produced in partnership with iHeartMedia. Hosted by Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr., the series gives listeners an inside look at how producers and writers of the Emmy-winning series use comedy to tackle a variety of complex topics, from racial injustice to sex robots. Correspondents Desi Lydic, Dulcé Sloan, Michael Kosta, Ronny Chieng and Contributor Jordan Klepper, along with an array of special guests, will also be featured.

Beyond the Scenes is distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network and will be available starting on Tuesday, July 20 with the premiere episode, Therapy in the Black Community. In this episode, Roy is joined by Daily Show writers X Mayo and Ashton Womack for a wide-ranging and deeply personal discussion about mental health, Black church, the protests against racial injustice and police brutality of 2020, and more.

The Daily Show has successfully launched Roy’s Job Fair in March 2021; The Daily Show Podcast Universe, a five-episode miniseries parodying popular podcasts in 2019; and The Daily Show: Ears Edition in 2018. Collectively, they have garnered more than 323 million downloads, with The Daily Show as the #1 Late Night Comedy podcast.

Future episodes to be featured on Beyond the Scenes include:

“Copaganda” – How Cop Shows Lie to You

Are we being brainwashed by cop shows? Daily Show producer Madeleine Kuhns and writer Ashton Womack join Roy to look at the legacy and popularity of policing onscreen, and how it shapes our relationship to police in the real world.
Female Orgasms On Screen: A Brief Hist-HER-y

From the sex-shaming of early cinema legend Hedy Lamarr to trapping Jane Fonda in an exploding orgasm piano, Hollywood’s relationship to female sexuality is complicated, controlling and sometimes just plain weird. Roy is joined by correspondent Desi Lydic and Daily Show writer Kat Radley for a stimulating discussion about the depiction of female pleasure onscreen.
Being Black in Corporate America

As Black Lives Matter protests sprung up across America in June 2020, Daily Show producer Chelsea Williamson posed a question on Instagram: “If you’re Black and my friend, can you tell me what racial things have happened to you at your job?” The responses led Chelsea to pitch a segment exploring what it’s like to be Black in overwhelmingly white workplaces. Chelsea and Daily Show writer Christiana Mbakwe-Medina join Roy to discuss the resulting piece and their personal experiences, from being called “too professional” to going from “pet to threat.”
Dul-Sayin’: How Female MC’s Helped Shape Hip Hop

Megan Thee Stallion. Queen Latifah. MC Lyte. In this episode, correspondent Dulcé Sloan and Daily Show producer Chelsea Williamson join Roy to discuss the women who found success in the misogynistic, male-dominated arena of rap music.
State of Black Shit

From Meghan Markle to police violence to the run on Popeye’s chicken sandwiches, The Daily Show’s annual “State of Black Shit Address” seeks to encapsulate the year in Black life. Writers X Mayo and Randall Otis talk to Roy about how they deal with dark subject matter comedically, what makes this particular segment unique and the eternal question, “where we is?”
How Racist is Boston?

In this episode, Roy and Daily Show producer CJ Hunt discuss their 2018 fieldpiece exploring Boston’s reputation as one of America’s most racist cities, and ask Boston’s NAACP President Tanisha Sullivan whether the city has made any progress in the wake of the 2020 racial reckoning.
