Comedy Central to Launch Trump-Themed Late Night Series

Comedy Central will launch a new late night series later this month based on President Donald Trump, the network said Monday.

The series, The President Show, debuts April 27 at 11:30 pm and stars series creator Anthony Atamanuik, who portrays President Trump as he hosts his own late night series, said network officials. According to Comedy Central, the series features the President as he bypasses the “crooked media” by hosting a late-night show directly from the Oval Office. The series also stars actor Peter Grosz, who plays Trump’s sidekick Vice President Mike Pence.

The President Show is executive produced by Atamanuik, Peter Grosz, Adam Pally (Making History, The Mindy Project), and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Olivia Gerke, Josh Lieberman, and Greg Walter.
