Adult Swim announced today that it has picked up a fourth season of Childrens Hospital, the irreverent, satirical comedy series created by and starring Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart). Adult Swim has ordered 14 new episodes for premiere in 2012, and principal photography will begin later this year on the hit comedy from Corddry and fellow executive producers/writers Jonathan Stern (producer of The Ten and NTSF:SD:SUV::) and David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models, the upcoming Wanderlust).

Currently in its third season (the show’s first season premiered as a digital series on TheWB.com), Childrens Hospital airs on Adult Swim Thursday nights at midnight (ET/PT).  For the last 10 weeks, the series has ranked #1 in its time period versus all television programming among adults 18-34, 18-49 and 18-24. The acclaimed program was honored as the best Sketch Comedy/Alternative Comedy Series at the inaugural Comedy Awards, the first multi-network event honoring outstanding achievements in the art of being funny, with the winners selected by a voting body consisting of some of the comedy community’s most accomplished professionals.

Produced by Abominable Pictures and Studio 2.0, and distributed by Warner Bros. Television, Childrens Hospital is based on the Webby Award–winning digital series that debuted on TheWB.com in 2008 and quickly became a Web hit with its twisted take on network medical dramas like Grey’s Anatomy and House.

“I’m very pleased and honored by this announcement,” said Corddry. “I’m also very surprised, given that I write this show when I’m very, very drunk. Season four promises to be a cry for help.”

 “And people wonder why our economy is a mess,” said Stern.
               
Wain added, “With this renewal, the network is acknowledging what most Americans already know: Childrens Hospital is no mere TV show—it’s the fuel that powers our spirits, the ultimate story of humankind. As The New York Times said, ‘Move over Shakespeare—Childrens Hospital is the real classic!’”*
               
(*loosely paraphrased from this actual New York Times quote: “The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of King Lear, directed by David Farr, can be strongly recommended for hypersensitive souls.”)
               
In season 4, Corddry will once again be joined by an ensemble cast of comedic heavyweights, including Malin Akerman (The Proposal, the upcoming Wanderlust), Lake Bell (How to Make It in America, No Strings Attached), Erinn Hayes (Parenthood, Worst Week), Rob Huebel (I Love You, Man; Human Giant), Ken Marino (Party Down, the upcoming Wanderlust), two-time Emmy® winner Megan Mullally (Will & Grace, Party Down) and Henry Winkler (Arrested Development, Happy Days).
Childrens Hospital explores the emotional struggles and sexual politics of a group of doctors charged with healthy libidos. Their dedication to their personal lives is relentless, interrupted only by the occasional need to treat sick people. Along with the all-star cast, guest stars have included Ed Begley Jr. (St. Elsewhere, Arrested Development), Lizzy Caplan (Party Down, True Blood), Michael Cera (Juno, Arrested Development), John Cho (Star Trek, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Rachael Harris (The Hangover, Reno 911!), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters, Oz), Kerri Kenney-Silver (Reno 911!, The State), Nick Kroll (The League, Worst Week), Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Jordan Peele (MADtv), Marion Ross (Happy Days), Will Sasso (MADtv, Less Than Perfect), Paul Scheer (The League, NTSF:SD:SUV::), Alicia Silverstone (Clueless), Kurtwood Smith (That ‘70s Show, Worst Week), Abigail Spencer (Mad Men, Angela’s Eyes), Martin Starr (Party Down, NTSF:SD:SUV::), David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models, the upcoming Wanderlust), Matt Walsh (Reno 911!, Upright Citizens Brigade) and Marlon Wayans (the Scary Movie films).

TNT began production this week on its intriguing new original series Perception, starring Emmy® and Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Eric McCormack (Will & Grace, Who Is Clark Rockefeller?). The series about an eccentric neuroscientist who helps solve complex criminal cases also stars Rachael Leigh Cook (She’s All That), Arjay Smith (The Day After Tomorrow) and Kelly Rowan (The O.C.). TNT has ordered 10 episodes of Perception, which will join the network’s lineup in summer 2012.

In Perception, McCormack plays Dr. Daniel Pierce, a neuroscientist and professor recruited to help the federal government crack difficult cases. His intimate knowledge of human behavior and masterful understanding of the mind give him an extraordinary ability to read people, but his eccentric view of the world and less-than-stellar social skills can often interfere with his work.

Cook co-stars as FBI agent Kate Moretti, Pierce’s former student and the person responsible for recruiting him to work for the government. Smith plays Max Lewicki, the teaching assistant whose primary job is to keep Pierce in line and on task. Rowan is Natalie Vincent, Pierce’s best friend and every bit his intellectual equal. In addition, award-winning actor LeVar Burton (Roots, Star Trek: The Next Generation) will play a recurring role as Paul Haley, a dean at the university.

Perception, which comes to TNT from ABC Studios, was created by executive producer Kenneth Biller (Star Trek: Voyager, Smallville) and co-executive producer Mike Sussman (Star Trek: Enterprise), with McCormack serving as producer. Alan Poul (Six Feet Under) directed and served as executive producer for the pilot. David Eagleman, a professor at Baylor School of Medicine and author of the New York Times Top 10 bestseller Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, serves as a technical consultant on the series.

 

This August, SCIENCE examines what happens when scientific research goes too far, with the world premiere of DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE.  The six-part series takes viewers inside the laboratory to profile strange science and expose some of history’s most bizarre experiments.  Hosted by noted science fiction actor John Noble (Fringe, Lord of the Rings), DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE delves into the most unusual research ever conducted, including attempts to crossbreed humans and apes, actual zombie investigations and head transplantation studies.  Cutting-edge CGI recreations enable viewers to witness the pivotal moments when brilliant minds face controversy or ethical crossroads on the fringes of science.  DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE premieres Wednesday, August 31, at 10:00 PM (ET/PT).

 

“The stories we share in DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE are as outlandish as a great sci-fi script or as disturbing as a classic horror tale — the only difference is that they’re all true,” said Noble.  “The series offers a glimpse into the dark side of science, as well as human nature.”

DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE offers a fascinating insight into moments of scientific history where individuals went to extreme measures to achieve a breakthrough.  It’s impossible to turn away from these true stories that you always assumed were just outlandish urban legends,” said Debbie Adler Myers, general manager and executive vice president of SCIENCE.  “This is real science — just the dark side of it, featuring brilliant minds who eventually took a dramatic turn.  John Noble is the perfect tour guide to escort viewers through this bizarre world of research gone horribly wrong, but that in some cases, actually led to technology and science that we use today.”  

The series premiere features the shocking story of Soviet scientist Dr. Ilya Ivanov, who in the 1920s attempted to start his own “planet of the apes.”  In an attempt to build an invincible army, Ivanov tried to crossbreed humans with apes to create a race of supersoldiers.  Viewers also will be introduced to Morris Jessup, a self-identified UFO expert who attempted to expose what he believed to be a military cover-up involving experiments with invisibility.  Finally, unorthodox studies by America’s greatest inventor, Thomas Edison, result in a dark and unintended invention which remains infamous today.

DARK MATTERS: TWISTED BUT TRUE is produced for SCIENCE by Wide-Eyed Entertainment.  Dan Gold and Jasper James are executive producers for Wide-Eyed Entertainment.  Rocky Collins is executive producer and Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production for SCIENCE.
