As the highly-anticipated follow-up to the Amp'd Mobile original animated series and new COMEDY CENTRAL series "Lil' Bush", Amp'd Mobile, the premiere mobile entertainment company, today announced the launch of its newest made-for-mobile animated series, "Lil' Hollywood." The parody series will follow the pint sized adventures of Hollywood's hottest celebrities as they try to get through their day-to-day lives -- which we all know is no small task.
"We realized, 'Hey, these Hollywood celebrities are pretty funny -- why doesn't anyone ever make fun of them,'" said series creator and industry veteran Donick Cary, writer of "The Simpsons", "Just Shoot Me" and "Late Night with David Letterman."
"Lil' Hollywood" is the second made-for-mobile partnership between Amp'd and Cary, who teamed to create this series with Tony Barbieri, writer of "The Man Show" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," and Rich Goodman, writer of "According to Jim."
"Britney Spears loves shaving things, and we'd like to thank her for trimming her schedule to provide us with so much material for Lil' Hollywood this past week," said Seth Cummings, Senior Vice President, Content Development & Programming at Amp'd. "Together with Lil' Mel Gibson, Lil' Paris Hilton, Lil' Lindsay Lohan and Lil' Scientologists like Lil' Tom Cruise and Lil' Travolta, our customers, who have been craving the launch of Lil' Hollywood, will be stuffed to the rafters."
A new episode will be featured each week for the next six weeks on Amp'd Live. And with Carson Daly voicing Lil' Britney's "Hoo-Hoo," things are bound to get a lil' outrageous.
A snapshot of the Lil' Hollywood adventures...
* Britney's Bald Boyfriend -- Lil'Britney finds herself single and in need of a date to the school dance. She ends up meeting the love of her life -- in her pants.
* Mel Is For Children -- Lil' Mel Gibson's candy addiction makes him prone to violent outbursts. Principal Martin Scorsese hopes to channel that energy by putting Mel in charge of directing the school play. Mel stages his own adaptation of 'Grease' complete with Mayans, Jesus and plenty of anti-Semitic laughs.
* A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words -- It's class photo day and Lil' Hollywood's plastic surgeons are out of town. Can the class pull it together themselves in time to look camera ready? Probably not.
The hugely popular "Lil' Bush" is the first-ever mobile original series to make the leap to television. This summer, the animated series will premiere on COMEDY CENTRAL.
