Discontinued, a Comedy Dynamics special is set to premiere on The CW Network December 16, 2018 (9:30pm-10:00pm ET).
Discontinued is a funny and informative look at the world’s most famous – and sometimes infamous – discontinued foods, toys, customs and businesses. Set in a mystical warehouse, YouTube star and self-proclaimed “black nerd” Andre Meadows takes viewers down memory lane recounting the rise and fall of these fallen pop culture titans, with the help of surprise special guests, “insider” experts, and a bevy of hilarious comics.
Creator, and director of the show Brian Volk-Weiss, alongside executive producers Robin Henry and Cisco Henson, brings this homage to nostalgia from the same people behind the Netflix hit docu-series The Toys That Made Us– a series featuring the minds behind history’s most iconic toys franchises that discuss the rise and fall of the industry’s billion dollar creations.
“It’s been a joy and honor working with The CW to bring to life a show that I’ve wanted to make for a very long time. Prepare yourselves for a whole lot of nostalgia bombs!” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
