Six-episode digital series hosted by comedian Paul Scheer
NY Digital Editor@xpangler Comedy Central is looping fans into a virtual nightclub with short-form digital series “CC: Social Scene,” in which comics perform skits based on suggestions submitted via Twitter.
The six-episode weekly series, hosted by comedian Paul Scheer and directed by Rich Talarico, debuted last week on the Viacom-owned cabler’s YouTube channel and also is distributed via the CC.com website, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and Twitter.
The “CC: Social Scene” ensemble cast includes Lee Newton, H. Michael Croner, Lilan Bowden, Jacob Womack, Jeff Sloniker and Barak Hardley. The first show revolved around the theme “worst breakup lines,” with others slated to include “what washes up on the beach,” “oddest combos at the BBQ” and “beach hogs,” inspired by beach horror stories.
The “CC: Social Scene” series is sponsored by Redd’s Apple Ale. Users must be 21 and older to participate in the show via Twitter, using the hashtag #CCSocialScene.
The sketch-comedy show is produced by the network’s CC:Studios group, created in January 2013 to develop original comedy content for digital distribution.
