"We're so excited to share the new season of Lonny and really hope fans of Season 1 will be blown away," continued series creators Alex Anfanger and Dan Schimpf. "It's been an amazing journey."
Combining sketch comedy, cinema, and satire, "Next Time on Lonny" centers on the 'next time' (or preview) segments that never happen. Season 2 takes reality star Lonny to a new city with "Lonny: Los Angeles," a more popular and polished version of his reality show, where the twenty-something Brooklyn native continues his search for love while navigating his life in a new and unfamiliar city. However, once the end credits roll and the teaser for the next episode runs, Lonny's mundane world quickly spirals into pure insanity. From riveting, action-packed bank heists, to alien invasions, and other over-the-top, genre-bending adventures, viewers never know what hilarious turns Lonny's life will take next.
Created by Alex Anfanger, who stars in the title role, and director Dan Schimpf, the duo, who began writing together while students at NYU, independently produced the six-episode first season in 2011. After catching the eye of Stiller and Red Hour, the pair announced in November they would co-produce the new 10-episode season of the series with Maker Studios

Anfanger and Schimpf are also writing the Comedy Central series "Big Time in Hollywood, FL," which will star Anfanger and be directed by Schimpf. The project is produced by Ben Stiller's Red Hour and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
