Comedy Central has ordered 12 episodes of Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!, a documentary-style series starring comedian Brody Stevens and executive produced by his close friend, Hangover star Zach Galifianakis. The project originated at HBO as part of a first-look deal Galifianakis had at the pay cable network. Ordered as a low-budget presentation by HBO, Brody Stevens: Enjoy It! became a six-episode 15-minute online series for HBO Digital. The Comedy Central order includes those six episodes, which will be expanded to half-hours, along with six brand new half-hour episodes, with the series slated to premiere this summer. Described as Comedy Central’s first ever dramatic comedy series, Brody Stevens: Enjoy It! follows the emotional roller coaster life of stand-up comic Stevens as he pulls his life back together after suffering a mental breakdown that is witnessed by his fans and the world via Twitter. He makes the rounds in LA, with pal Galifianakis and others in tow, including Sarah Silverman, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, trying to reconnect and reconcile with the close friends he let down. The series combines a mix of live stand-up footage, documentary footage and animation. Stevens, Galifianakis, Mike Gibbons, Generate’s Dave Rath and Funny Or Die executive produce the series, directed by Dean Fleisher-Camp. Stevens also recently shot a stand-up set for the Comedy Central series The Half Hour that will air this summer, as well as a companion 17-episode digital series Push And Believe for CC: Studios, chronicling how he and 17 other comics prep to shoot their Half Hour specials.
