On the Internet, you can have an idea, write it up, cast your friends and have people watch it all within a ridiculously short period of time. And you can swear
Burbank, Calif. (Vocus) October 16, 2008
Actor/comedian Rob Corddry (''What Happens in Vegas,'' ''The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'') has created and stars in ''Childrens' Hospital,'' a new, original web series for TheWB.com (http://www.thewb.com ) and produced by the Warner Bros. Television Group's digital venture Studio 2.0. A trailer for the new series has just debuted at http://www.thewb.com , with episodes scheduled to launch sometime in December.
An irreverent satirical comedy that lampoons the medical show genre, ''Childrens' Hospital'' reunites Corddry with his ''What Happens in Vegas'' co-star Lake Bell (upcoming feature film ''Pride and Glory'') and also stars Ken Marino (''The State,'' ''Veronica Mars''), Erinn Hayes (''Worst Week''), Rob Huebel (''Human Giant,'' ''The Awful Truth''), Jason Sudeikis (''Saturday Night Live''), David Wain (''The State,'' ''Wainy Days''), Nathan Corddry (''Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,'' ''The Daily Show with Jon Stewart''), Ed Helms (''The Office''), Nick Kroll (upcoming feature ''I Love You, Man'') and two-time Emmy® winner Megan Mullally (''Will & Grace'') as The Chief.
In ''Childrens' Hospital,'' beautiful doctors with tragic flaws struggle with charged emotional and sexual politics in the workplace … which just happens to be a hospital for young kids in life-threatening situations. More often than not, the wildly inappropriate behavior of the oversexed medical staff is witnessed by terminally ill pre-teens. No medical condition is too severe to distract these oblivious doctors from their primal need to flirt, gossip, make out, talk about sex, show their underwear and more, all in front of horrified children and their anxious parents.
"On the Internet, you can have an idea, write it up, cast your friends and have people watch it all within a ridiculously short period of time. And you can swear," said Corddry.
''Childrens' Hospital'' is created, written and directed by Rob Corddry. The executive producers are Rob Corddry, Jonathan Stern (''The Ten,'' ''Wainy Days''), David Wain and Studio 2.0's Rich Rosenthal. The series is produced by Studio 2.0.
