Comedy Central's threeway

Comedy Central has ordered a pilot episode of a new improvisational comedy which will spoof shows such as American Chopper and Monster Garage. The new series, which is being compared stylistically to Reno 911, will take place in an automotive garage in suburban Phoenix. Assuming the pilot gets picked up, it will air this fall. The series is called American Body Shop. It is actually one of three new pilots the network is looking at, including a series called Mark and Mike, which will focus on Mark Borchardt and Mike Schank, the two "stars" of American Movie who will try to secure distribution for his new horror film. The series begins where American Movie left off. The third pilot is an untitled comedy and variety show featuring stand-up comic DeRay Davis.
