Showtime Sets Premiere Date for Animated Comedy 'Our Cartoon President'

Showtime has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original animated comedy series Our Cartoon President from Stephen Colbert.

The new animated series will premiere on Sunday, February 11 at 8/7c. ahead of the new season of Homeland. The premium cable network will offer a sample of the premiere across all platforms starting on January 28. The first season will include 10 episodes.

The comedy examines the quintessentially Trumpian details of the presidency and his most important relationships, and no one is safe - from his close family and confidants to key political figures from both parties and members of the media.

Stephen Colbert and Chris Licht created the series. R.J. Fried will serve as showrunner for the first season. Tim Luecke is the lead animator and a co-executive producer.
