Do you have a short form animated idea?  Do you think that idea could be the next thing on Comedy Central only how do you get it to the right people at Comedy Central? The GreenRoom is your secret portal to the "right people".

Comedy Central launched The Animated Shorts Program October 1, 2018.  The program is designed to submit your ideas directly to Comedy Central with the potential to sign a development deal and was announced by Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, Executive Vice Presidents and Co-Heads of Talent Development, Comedy Central.

"We hope the Animated Shorts Program is an evolution of our continuous history of finding the next great comedic voices. We are grateful to the very smart people at Nickelodeon who originated this incubator, and we are excited to put the Comedy Central touch on it with hopefully the same successful results Nickelodeon has found," said Babineau and Larsen.
