Not only has Comedy Central upped the fourth season order of Key & Peele to 22 episodes, the network’s also made a development deal with Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. The duo’s “Vandaveon & Mike” characters are getting their own animated series, according to Comedy Central’s Content Development and Original Programming President Kent Alterman. According to the official announcement, the new animated series will find Vandaveon & Mike “as 12 year-old hall monitors navigating their way through middle school.”
“Keegan and Jordan keep generating such a limitless supply of funny, inventive sketches, I’m starting to think they are not only 1/2 black and 1/2 white, but also 3/4 alien,” said Alterman.
Season three of Key & Peele averaged 2 million viewers and held the #1 spot in cable rankings with men 18-34. Among the guest stars who showed up on seasons one through three have been Wayne Brady, James Callis, Andrew Daly, Colin Hanks, Gabriel Iglesias, Natasha Leggero, Jack McBrayer, Metta World Peace, Jason Schwartzman, Kevin Sorbo, and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.
The Plot:
Key and Peele are best known for their impressive ability for improv, celebrity impressions and conjuring up original characters. The show utilizes a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments to examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, from two men used to being on the outside looking in. Whether it’s satirizing the President, spoofing musical acts, or taking on religion, Key & Peele showcases their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world.
