Colbert and his Our Cartoon President team will have its animated characters poke fun at TV news' handling current events and cable news shows like The Five while interviewing real-world guests and newsmakers. Tooning Out the News will feature short daily segments -- such as "Hot Take" and "Virtue Signal" -- that will lead to weekly, full episodes. “The minute the imaginators at Tooning Out the News decked their bleeding edge ideation bizmeth, I knew that the news jackers were ripe for our freemium growth hack pivot,” Colbert said in a statement. “Let’s go Omnichannel for UTTR! I also couldn’t be prouder to be working with my old friend, James Smartwood. Go get ‘em, Jimbo!” ALSO: Watch Tooning Out the News' trailer.
