HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Comedy Central has two new half-hour series, one a reality show and the other based on a stage show, the Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday.

"Stella" will star Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter and David Wain. Comedy Central has ordered 10 episodes of the drama, which is based on a stage show and chronicles the misadventures of a trio of modern Marx Brothers who face absurdist obstacles.

It debuts this summer.

Debuting in April will be the eight-episode reality series "Con," which stars Skyler Stone as a con artist.
