Amp’d Mobile Signs Up Jack Black & Howard Gordon

Amp’d Mobile has done another major original production deal: it has signed up comedian Jack Black and “24” executive producer Howard Gordon to produce two video series for its subscribers, reports WSJ.
This follows an Amp’d original show that was picked up by Comedy Central late last year. It bought the TV and digital rights to the animated series, “Lil’ Bush: Resident of the United States,” and is co-producing it with Amp’d Mobile and the show’s creator Donick Cary.
On the latest shows, Black and his producing partners will develop a series of comedy shorts for Amp’d. Meanwhile, TV production company Icebox, co-founded by Gordon, plans to develop an investigative news series that examines mysterious sightings from around the world.
HollywoodReporter: Black, with producing partners Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab, will develop a series of comedy shorts this year for Amp’d Mobile based on their Channel 101 events, monthly screenings of amateur shorts in Los Angeles where the audience decides on the top productions. In the mobile version, the audience also will decide which shows are canceled and which will return.
