NEW YORK, July 13 (UPI) -- "Wet Hot American Summer" co-stars Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter are to headline "Michael & Michael Have Issues," Comedy Central said.

The 7-episode TV series, which casts the longtime comedic partners as the hosts of their own fictitious sketch show, is to debut Wednesday.

"Behind the scenes of the show-within-a-show, viewers will get a first-hand look at issues, both big -- in an attempt to broaden their appeal, the guys turn their show into a frat house spectacle -- and small -- the two Michaels fight over the approval of a teenage intern writing an article about them for his high school newspaper -- that the two misguided stars wrestle with as they confront their own issues of insecurity and jealousy as each attempts to undermine the other," Comedy Central said in a news release.
