Lauren Corrao, the senior vp original programming and head of development at Los Angeles, California-based Comedy Central, has developed a new series from a batch of 30-second animated interstitials dubbed "House Arrest" that Leary's Apostle Pictures recently produced for the network. The evolution of "House Arrest" from shorts to series exemplifies the nontraditional approach Comedy Central has taken to development in the 10 months since Corrao joined the channel as senior vp original programming. From a creative standpoint, Corrao remembered from her MTV days that shorts can be a good source of humor and brand power.
