Comedy Buys Kenny Vs. Spenny

Comedy Central said Friday that it will premiere the raunchy Canadian reality/comedy series Kenny vs. Spenny Nov. 14.

The network said it licensed 10 existing episodes of the series from Blueprint Entertainment and Breakthrough Films & Television, and that Trey Parker and Matt Stone – creators of Comedy Central hit series South Park – will help produce 10 additional episodes.

Kenny vs. Spenny stars Kenneth Hotz and Spencer Rice. The show “pits childhood friends against each other in ridiculous competitions,” Comedy Central said. “The winner achieves short-term glory and bragging rights, while the loser is forced to perform a humiliating stunt of the winner’s choosing.”

Previous challenges undertaken by Kenny and Spenny include “Who Can Stay Naked the Longest?,” “Who Can Sell More Bibles?,” “Who Can Last the Longest Without Arms?” and “Who Do Gay Guys Like More?”

The new episodes will be produced by Blueprint Entertainment and Breakthrough Films & Television in association with Shocase in Canada. Hotz, Rice, Stone and Parker executive produce with John Morayniss, Noreen Halpern, Peter Williamson, Ira Levy and Abby Finer.

“When we first saw Kenny vs. Spenny, we thought it was really funny. And the fact that they are Canadian somehow makes it even funnier,” Stone and Parker said in Friday’s announcement. “Truthfully, the show isn’t just funny, it’s the most accurate examination of male friendships that we’ve ever seen.”
