NEW YORK, April 12 (UPI) -- U.S. cable network Comedy Central says it has ordered eight episodes of a stand-up series called "Adam Devine's House Party" to premiere this fall.

The show will spotlight 24 of Devine's favorite up-and-coming comedians, said Kent Alterman, the network's president of content development and original programming.

"It's hard to imagine what could go wrong by giving Adam so much money and turning him loose in a mansion to throw a house party, but we are sure to find out," Alterman said in a statement Friday.

"I don't know how I convinced Comedy Central to give me another show, a Hollywood mansion and a paycheck for hanging out with my friends," said Devine, who also stars on the network's series "Workaholics." "I hope they have a good lawyer and the fire department on speed dial."
