Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment have finally announced its star studded cast for Digman!, the a new adult animated adventure comedy series coming to Comedy Central.

Diaz, President of Content and Chief Creative Officer, Paramount Media Networks & MTV Entertainment Studios. “We are thrilled to partner with him, The Lonely Island and CBS Studios on Digman! - the first series Andy has written and produced - to Comedy Central’s robust animation line-up.”
