MTV2 Gets Bernie Mac; Netflix Goes Dynamite with New Comedy

The Bernie Mac Show

We have more Viacom wheeling and dealing. The sitcom The Bernie Mac Show is now on MTV2. It was previously seen on Centric and before that on BET a few years back. The Bernie Mac Show also recently started airing on the digital multicast network Bounce TV. As for MTV2, of course the series will not have a set timeslot, but you can catch it in multiple blocks throughout the week. Bernie Mac joins the MTV2 line-up which has other sitcoms in block programming like The Wayans Bros, Jamie Foxx Show, Boy Meets World, Everybody Hates Chris, My Wife & Kids, Smart Guy and Martin. The series is based on the comedy of Bernie Mac. In the series, a stand-up comedian and his wife take in his sister's three kids, while celebrity guests drop by occasionally to offer Bernie advice.


Maria Bamford

Netflix has ordered Lady Dynamite, a new original comedy series starring actor and comedian Maria Bamford. The series is based on what she has accepted to be "her life." The occasionally surreal episodes, refracted across multiple periods inspired by the actor/comedian's life, tell the story of a woman who loses - and then finds - her s**t. Pam Brady, Mitch Hurwitz and Maria Bamford are executive producers on the single camera comedy series. Thirteen, 30-minute episodes of the single camera comedy series have been ordered.
