Hannibal Buress Gets Series Order For Topical Show “Why?” From Comedy Central

(via Deadline)

Unlike the time when Hannibal Buress really jumped the gun and announced that Comedy Central picked up his series on Twitter in an attempt to perhaps visualize his goals, Hannibal has really gotten an official series order where he basically gets to talk about and do what he wants.

Comedy Central has ordered 8 episodes of Why? which will feature Buress talking about the burning issues of the day, the ones he cares about anyway, and feature pre-taped segments, man-on-the-street bits, etc.

It sounds a little bit like Chapelle’s Show, but with Hannibal leading the way, we have no problem with that whatsoever and look forward to the premiere.
