By Tim Molloy

Comedy Central has unveiled a CC:Studios development slate that includes three renewals and six new shows in development, including a babysitter comedy starring a "Workaholics" veteran and a series that will feature comic Kurt Braunohler interviewing guests under odd circumstances.

Comedy Central's digital channel ordered second seasons of "Bro-Dependent," "This Is Not Happening" with Ari Shaffir (pictured)  and "The Walsh Brothers Great & Secret Comedy Show."

Here are descriptions of the newly greenlit shows, as described by the network:

"Biatches" (Working Title)
Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov (writers on "Punk'd" and "Good Vibes") wrote and star in this animated series about bad girls kicked out of middle school and forced to attend the Special Education Students program - but they're not going to let that stop them from wreaking their raunchy brand of havoc.

Charlotte Newhouse and Jillian Bell ("Workaholics") created and star in a show about a straight-and-narrow young woman (Newhouse) who is hired to babysit a mega-rich womanchild (Bell) who has been left alone in her daddy's mansion under house arrest.

"The Midnight Beast"
Ashley Horne, Dru Wakely & Stefan Abingdon are hip-hop comedy group The Midnight Beast. Already blowing up in the UK and on YouTube for their parody music videos, the guys are ready to leap across the pond and partner with CC:Studios.

CC:Studios has partnered with GameTrailers to produce and distribute a video game focused animated sketch series. Segments feature Steve Agee, Rich Fulcher, Jordan Morris, Ron Funches, Brent Morin, Peter Giles, Andrew Bachelor, H. Michael Croner and Matt Cook.

"Strong Island"
Creators and co-stars Jon Gabrus and Justin Tyler portray two brothers living at home with their mom on Long Island. This series is part of a multiplatform deal Gabrus and Tyler inked with Comedy Central. Cast also includes Artemis Pebdani ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") and Kevin "Dot Com" Brown ("30 Rock").

"Untitled Kurt Braunohler"
The Untitled Kurt Braunohler Project is a multi-format interview show where each guest is interviewed gonzo style in unexpected locations.
