Comedy Central Orders 'Ugly Americans'

In an effort to ramp up their animation series, Comedy Central has ordered a new one from former "Simpsons" writer, "Ugly Americans."

The new 30 minute series is "set in an alternate-universe New York City where fantasy and sci-fi creatures live among us as ordinary citizens," and centers around the life of a social worker who helps newcomers adjust to the city.

"During these tough economic times our viewers need a good laugh now more than ever," said Lauren Corrao, president, original programming and development. "With the pick-up of 'Ugly Americans,' our viewers will be able to escape into a fantasy world like they've never seen before."

The network also announced premiere dates for previously announced new series "Tosh.0" (June 4 at 10 p.m.), "Michael & Michael Have Issues" (July 15 at 10:30 p.m.) and "Secret Girlfriend" (Oct. 14 at 10:30 p.m.).
