Comedy Central Renews ‘Legends of Chamberlain Heights’

Animated Sitcom Renewed Before Even Debuting

Comedy Central has announced a second season renewal for animated “Legends of Chamberlain Heights” at Comic-Con before even debuting. “Legends of Chamberlain Heights” is described as an urban animated series mixing raucous comedy and social commentary that centers on three high school freshman basketball benchwarmers: Jamal, Grover, and Milk. The three friends tackle life with some wins and some losses, but failure doesn’t faze them since they’re legends… even if it’s just in their own minds.

The first season of “Legends of Chamberlain Heights” is set to premiere on Wednesday, September 14, at 10:30 p.m. ET, following the 20th season premiere of “South Park.”
“Legends of Chamberlain Heights” is executive produced by Bento Box Entertainment (“Bob’s Burgers,” “Brickleberry”) co-founders Scott Greenberg and Joel Kuwahara, along with co-creator Brad Ableson (“The Simpsons,” “Good Vibes”) and showrunner Devon Shepard (“Everybody Hates Chris,” “Being Mary Jane”).
