Colbert Co-Creator Ben Karlin Signs 2-Year Development Deal With ABC Studios

By

Former Daily Show and Colbert producer Ben Karlin has signed a two-year deal with ABC Studios. Staring April 1, Karlin will develop and executive produce at least two original projects per year. The deal follows ABC’s interest in Karlin’s sitcom script for It’s Not Me, It’s You, which nearly snagged a pilot order from the network this year. I, for one, look forward to the Green Party faux-news show you can catch on ABC next fall.
