7 More Episodes of State of The Union!! Whoo!!
Showtime picks up Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union for a third season
LOS ANGELES, CA – (June 18, 2009) – Seven-time-Emmy®-winner Tracey Ullman will return for a third hilarious season in her critically-acclaimed sketch comedy series TRACEY ULLMAN’S STATE OF THE UNION. Seven new episodes will start production this summer and air on SHOWTIME in 2010. Ullman will once again serve as executive producer with her husband Allan McKeown, and she will also write the episodes.
TRACEY ULLMAN’S STATE OF THE UNION features a kaleidoscope of original characters and impersonations in a wide collection of irreverent and hilarious skits that range from sardonic parody and social satire to Bollywood musicals. Over the last two seasons, Ullman has tackled the country’s celebrity-obsessed, 24-hour news culture by portraying a variety of characters from celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Renée Zellweger, Dina Lohan, Tony Sirico and David Beckham to politicians and pundits like Laura Bush, Nancy Pelosi and Arianna Huffington. Additionally, Ullman has created a new line-up of original characters that reflect a cross-section of American society from an Indian pharmacist to a homeless woman without health insurance to a soldier on temporary leave from Iraq.
