MUMBAI: Ever since it first started in India almost two years ago, Comedy Central India has grown to be identified with fun, comedy and laughter. From popular sitcoms to exclusive show launches, the channel brings to its viewers some of the funniest shows from across the world.



 

This May, viewers can brace themselves for an all new level of comedy with the launch of nine new shows on the channel. Shows like the Golden Globe Award winner Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the latest season of the globally acclaimed Suits and the extremely popular game series Wipe Out will be a part of the new line up.



 

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a workplace comedy that deals with a diverse group of detectives who are at the very edge of New York City. After the success of airing three back-to-back series of the legal drama, Comedy Central now brings the final six episodes of the third season of Suits. The channel will also Wipe Out, the game show series where the world’s largest obstacle course will be witnessed in which will see contestants making their way through a giant obstacle course to win a cash price.



 

In addition to the latest seasons of the critically acclaimed The Mindy Project, Suits, Wipe Out and Citizen Kane, Comedy Central India will also premiere the 2014 reboot of the classic The Kumars at No. 42. The Kumars at No. 42 has seen two Indian adaptations viz., The Batliwalas’ at No. 43 and Comedy Nights with Kapil. Another reboot that will soon be seen on Comedy Central would be the 2013 revival of Whose Line Is It Anyway? with the same cast returning joined by Aisha Tyler hosting. Another sitcom that will soon be seen on Comedy Central would be Sean Saves the World, starring Sean Hayes, from the EMMY Award nominated writer of Better Off Ted. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will also return to Comedy Central India with brand new episodes.



 

Commenting on the all new prime time line-up, Viacom18 Media English entertainment  SVP & GM, Ferzad Palia, said that the channel’s objective has always been to bring fresh and funny content to viewers. “Since launch we’ve set out to expand our programming line-up year-on-year by bringing the most popular and globally renowned shows, be it contemporary or classics. This May, we bring viewers an award winning, all new Prime time line-up that is sure to engage both loyal & new audiences”, said Palia in a statement.
