Comedy Central Renews ‘Legends of Chamberlain Heights’ for Season 2 Ahead of Premiere

21 July 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ahead of the series debut, Comedy Central has renewed animated series “Legends of Chamberlain Heights” for a second season. The first season premieres Sept. 14.

The renewal announcement was made Thursday evening at Comic-Con in San Diego.

“This show pushes the envelope far enough to warrant a second season before season one even airs,” said Comedy Central president Kent Alterman.

“Legends of Chamberlain Heights” is described as an urban animated series mixing raucous comedy and social commentary that centers on three high school freshman basketball benchwarmers: Jamal, Grover and Milk. The trio of friends tackle life with some wins and some losses, but failure doesn’t faze them since they’re legends — even if it’s just in their own minds.

The show hails from Bento Box Entertainment, the company behind animated hits “Bob’s Burgers,” “Brickleberry” and “The Awesomes.” Exec producers are Bento Box co-founders Scott Greenberg and Joel Kuwahara, Brad Ableson »

Maybe most exciting is the fact that the music in the show will take precedence over the action and comedy.

The Blues Brothers series was co-created and will be executive produced by original Blues Brother Dan Aykroyd, Judy Belushi and Emmy-winning original Saturday Night Live writer Anne Beatts. Each half-hour will be devoted to the music, mayhem and comedy first seen in the original 1980 movie and its 1998 sequel. Jake and Elwood Blues will reunite with their infamous Blues Brothers band, taking their act on the road. Their home base will still be Chicago, with soul, »
