Showtime puts first Our Cartoon President episode online
Ahead of Tuesday’s State of the Union Address, Showtime is giving viewers an early opportunity to sample the premiere episode of the new animated series Our Cartoon President, executive produced by multiple Emmy winner Stephen Colbert, Chris Licht (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and R.J. Fried. The half-hour parody series follows the tru-ish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and his merry band of advisors and family members. Along with the first Our Cartoon President episode, Showtime has unveiled the poster art for the series which you can view in the gallery underneath.
Our Cartoon President is set to debut on air with two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, February 11 starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The new 10-episode parody Our Cartoon President 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. In this parallel cartoon universe, the Commander-in-Chief opens the White House doors for an “all access” look at a typical day in the life of the President of the United States.
Our Cartoon President is produced by CBS Television Studios and executive produced by Colbert, Licht and Fried, who serves as showrunner. Tim Luecke serves as lead animator and co-executive producer. Matt Lappin is consulting producer.
