Comedy Central has recently inked an exclusive partnership agreement with production outfit Irony Point, under which founder Daniel Powell, head of production Alexandra Bach, and Ugly Americans creator Devin Clark will be working together to develop and produce new animated projects under Comedy Central’s banner.
Clark will be serving as the dedicated Irony Point executive, and he will be reporting directly to Powell. Aside from his work on the cult hit Ugly Americans, Clark was also involved in various projects for Comedy Central and other networks, including HBO, TCM, MTV, CN, and Adult Swim as a freelance designer/animator.
Powell, on the other hand, was formerly director of East Coast development for Comedy Central, under which he was executive in charge of production for Important Things with Demetri Martin season 1 and the Colbert Report. He also worked formerly as an associate producer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
