“Martin” is the second series Comedy Central has ordered from Stewart’s Busboy Prods. since they struck a first-look deal in 2005. “The Colbert Report” was their first collaboration.

Martin has worked with Comedy Central in various other capacities, including his first comedy album, “These Are Jokes”; a stand-up tour; and a primetime special, “Demetri Martin, Person,” which aired in January.
