Rosie O'Donnell is dipping a toe back into comedic television with Logo, the gay-themed cable channel from MTV Networks.
Logo has picked up six half-hour episodes of sketch-comedy showcase The Big Gay Show, on which O'Donnell will serve as an executive producer. It will premiere sometime next year.
The cast includes Erica Ash, Dion Flynn, Julie Goldman, Stephen Guarino, Johnny McGovern, Kate McKinnon, Nicol Paone, and Michael Serrato. Former Married ... with Children actress Amanda Bearse will direct.
"Rosie O'Donnell's comedic precision and unique bond with the LGBT audience will provide an exceptional artistic foundation for a cast of fresh and inventive performers," said Brian Graden, president of entertainment at MTV Networks Music Group and president of Logo.
