Daniel Tosh is preparing to take on blogs, vlogs, tweets and pokes for Comedy Central.
The network has started production on 10 installments of Tosh.0, a weekly topical series in which the comedian, with a touch of sarcasm and a little bite, hopes to change the way people think about the Web.
Launching in June, the series will go deep into the Web, spinning commentary about blogs and vlogs both popular and obscure, tweets and pokes, popular sites and new technologies. The series will also feature viral clips of the week, premiere its own original videos created by and starring well-known actors and comedians, as well as highlight a weekly "viewer's choice" video chosen from among those uploaded and voted on via Comedy Central's flanker Web site, Atom.
"Finally, a television show that steals from the Internet, as opposed to the other way around," said Tosh in a statement.
Noted Lauren Corrao, president, original programming and development, Comedy Central: "The Internet has become an essential and familiar part of our viewers lives and it's filled with humor, be it a blog, site or video, that calls out for comedic commentary. Daniel is the guy you want offering up opinions on everything around you - he's biting, hilarious and so quick."
