They will launch its new original scripted web series Heckle U, executively produced by NuMedia Studios. The series stars Tom Arnold ("Happy Endings") and Owen Benjamin ("House Bunny"). Benjamin is also co-directing the series with James Boyd ("Halflife"). On 2/9, the 10-webisode series will premiere exclusively on CBS.com and TV.com. The series will also feature Katie Cleary ("CSI: NY"), Kirk Fox ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall") and Chris Wylde ("Descent").
Heckle U is the story of Chance Stevens’ road to glory as a professional heckler for the fictional Montana University. In each episode, Chance and his uncle, Lou the bartender, tell sexy reporter Amanda Marsh about a new adventure, from overcoming his Heckler’s Block, to winning the Championship game. Along the way, we meet Darrell, Chance’s best friend and heckling partner in crime, and Todd, Chance’s jealous half-brother.
Each webisode will premiere on CBS.com, TV.com, and across the CBS Audience Network. Three new webisodes will be released during the first week, followed by a single new webisode a week for the remainder of the series. Heckle U will also be promoted across CBS Interactive platforms.
