Adult Swim to Produce 'Children's Hospital' Spinoff 'Newsreaders'

In a very minor form of life imitating art, Children's Hospital's show within a show Newsreaders, who last season investigated all the failed spinoffs of each of the characters (watch the episode here), is getting its own real-life spinoff. The TV newsmagazine satire will be run by Children's Hospital's creative team and former Daily Show executive producer Jim Margolis. Margolis used to work on actual newsmagazine shows like 60 Minutes, so this is the 15-minute show he was destined to work on.
