NEW YORK, April 11, 2013 – Adam Devine, co-star of the hit COMEDY CENTRAL series “Workaholics,” is taking the party to the next level as the channel has ordered eight episodes of a stand-up series, “Adam Devine’s House Party,” it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Content Development and Original Programming, COMEDY CENTRAL. The series will spotlight 24 of Devine’s favorite up-and-coming comedians and is slated to premiere on COMEDY CENTRAL this fall. Produced by Avalon Television, “Adam Devine’s House Party” is executive produced by Devine, Avalon’s Jon Thoday, Richard Allen-Turner, David Martin, Isaac Horne, and fellow “Workaholic” Kyle Newacheck, who will also direct the series.
“It’s hard to imagine what could go wrong by giving Adam so much money and turning him loose in a mansion to throw a house party, but we are sure to find out,” said Alterman.
“I don’t know how I convinced Comedy Central to give me another show, a Hollywood mansion and a paycheck for hanging out with my friends,” said Devine. “I hope they have a good lawyer and the fire department on speed dial.”
