Showtime Plans Donald Trump Animated Comedy

Stephen Colbert executive produces workplace series about the first family

Viewers are about to get another satirical show about President Donald Trump.

Showtime announced Thursday that it has given a 10-episode order to a half-hour animated series that will look at the First Family of the United States and will air this fall.

The untitled series is executive produced by late-night host and political satirist Stephen Colbert and will star the animated avatars of Trump and his family.

The network describes the show as a “workplace comedy,” which takes place in the White House. It’s also an animated mockmentary, told from the perspective of an imaginary documentary crew.

Colbert was, of course, the host of “The Colbert Report,” where he played a parody of a conservative pundit, and while he promised to drop the character when he moved on to his CBS late night gig, he’s continued to utilize political humor, taking on the Trump administration.

“I know a lot of people wanted to do this, and I’m honored that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world,” Colbert said in a statement. “I’ve seen some of the footage, and I look forward to sharing the man behind the MAGA.”

The show is partially inspired by the animated opening segment of the 2016 Showtime special, “Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going to Clean up This Sh*t?” along with an animated Trump that has appeared on “The Late Show.”

Colbert has teamed up with Chris Licht, who will also executive produce the series. Tim Luecke, who co-created the “Late Show” version of animated Trump, will serve as lead animator.

“Stephen and Chris have an uncanny genius for deconstructing the world of President Trump, and this series opens a new realm for them,” said President and CEO of Showtime David Nevins. “Their vision will produce a comedy that makes waves, gets attention and plays great on our networks, including our streaming service.”

The untitled series will be joining “The President Show” on Comedy Central, which also provides a satirical look at the life and relationships of the President.
