Chris Distefano’s new general deal with Comedy Central could function as a blueprint for future deals for top comedians to aspire to lock.
The agreement with Comedy Central carries a second-hour special, an animated show, an unscripted series along with also the continuation of his Friday night interstitial series Stupid Questions with Chris Distefano, in addition to first look at content created/developed for any Comedy Central platform.
The venture comes after the 34-year-old, New York-based comedian had seven pilots not to make it into the air within the last several years, including a for CBS based on his lifetime together with Chaz Palminteri (A Bronx Tale) playing his dad. He also co-created the former job with How I Met Your Mother founders Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.
