Adult Swim announced today it has picked up another season of Childrens Hospital, the new comedy series created by Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), which premiered on the network in July. Principle photography for 14 new episodes begins later this year.
Childrens Hospital is based on the Webby Award–winning digital series that debuted on TheWB.com in 2008 and quickly became a Web hit with its twisted take on network medical dramas like Grey’s Anatomy and House. The show’s creative team is led by Corddry and fellow executive producers/writers Jonathan Stern (producer of The Ten and Scotland, PA) and David Wain (director of Role Models and Wet Hot American Summer). All new episodes continue to premiere Sunday nights at midnight (ET/PT) on Adult Swim.
In season 2, Corddry will once again be joined by an ensemble cast of comedic heavyweights, including Malin Akerman (Couples Retreat, Watchmen), Lake Bell (How to Make It in America, It’s Complicated), Erinn Hayes (Parenthood, Worst Week), Rob Huebel (I Love You Man, Human Giant), Ken Marino (Party Down, Reaper), two-time Emmy® winner Megan Mullally (Will & Grace, Party Down) and Henry Winkler (Arrested Development, Happy Days).
Childrens Hospital explores the emotional struggles and sexual politics of a group of doctors charged with healthy libidos. Their dedication to their personal lives is relentless, interrupted only by the occasional need to treat sick children. Along with the all-star cast, guest stars have included Ed Begley Jr. (St. Elsewhere, Arrested Development), Lizzy Caplan (Party Down, True Blood), John Cho (Star Trek, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle), Rachael Harris (The Hangover, Reno 911!), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters, Oz), Kerri Kenney-Silver (Reno 911!, The State), Nick Kroll (The League, Worst Week), Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Marion Ross (Happy Days), Will Sasso (MADtv, Less Than Perfect), Paul Scheer (The League, Human Giant), Kurtwood Smith (That ’70s Show, Worst Week), Abigail Spencer (Mad Men, Angela’s Eyes), David Wain (Wainy Days, The State) and Matt Walsh (Reno 911!, Upright Citizens Brigade).
