(FROM VARIETY) ? Snoop Dogg, Andy Richter, and David Alan Grier showed up on Comedy Central’s slate of new shows planned for the 2008-09 season. The network has ordered an untitled animated comedy about Snoop’s life as a teen-ager growing up in Long Beach, CA; Richter will star in an untitled sketch pilot; and Grier is set for David Alan Grier’s Chocolate News, a magazine-show parody. The network is also launching new live-action series Krod Mandoon, about a clueless medieval hero who’s a bit distracted, Flaming Sword of Fire, which the channel describes as its ”first foray into medieval comedy,” Gay Robot, an animated half-hour (consisting of two short segments) about a gay robot adjusting to life after college, and Search and Destroy, which features radio jocks Opie and Anthony sending teams of comedians on a scavenger hunt around New York.
