Channel 4 has inked a deal with Viacom International Studios to acquire the UK rights to Comedy Central’s comedy series The Other Two for E4. The deal also gives C4 VOD rights to the show, allowing them to make The Other Two available in its entirety on All 4.
The Other Two follows Cary, a 28-year-old actor struggling to get better auditions than “Man At Party Who Smells Fart,” and Brooke,his 30-year-old sister, who is struggling in general. As the two work toward finding themselves, their lives are completely upended when their 13-year-old brother, ChaseDreams, becomes incredibly famous overnight.
With Hollywood-ready mother Pat and newly-hired manager Streeter, Cary and Brooke are going to work hard to simultaneously cash in on their brother’s success and help him as he grows up in a mad new world. The comedy series, which has already been renewed for a second season, is produced by Broadway Video and Jax Media and stars Drew Tarver, Heléne Yorke, Case Walker, Molly Shannon and Ken Marino. The Other Two was created and written by Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider, who also serve as executive producers alongside Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer and Tony Hernandez.
At E4, The Other Two joins a slate of U.S. scripted comedies that includes The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Black-ish and Happy Together. This VIS agreement marks the latest deal for E4 in the past couple of months after they previously acquired ABC comedy Speechless from Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, and future seasons of The Goldbergs and spin-off Schooled from Sony Pictures Television. No word yet on a premiere date for The Other Two.
