Comedy Central Orders 15-Minute Series ‘The High Court’ Starring Doug Benson
Doug Benson is headed to Comedy Central with his very own show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has given a series order to a show from Benson called The High Court. Loosely based on Benson’s show Getting Doug with High, the series folows Benson as “Judge Doug” as he rules on real small claims court cases “before retiring to his chamber with a guest bailiff to get very stoned and deliberate on the matter.” Unlike Comedy Central’s other series, Benson’s show will take on the Adult Swim-style format, with each episode only 15 minutes in length. It is slated to premiere sometime early next year. Benson’s last Comedy Central series The Benson Interruption aired on the network for one season in 2010.
