Stan & CBS All Access have today announced the second season renewal of the US adaptation of NO ACTIVITY, Stan’s first original comedy series to go Stateside.
NO ACTIVITY, currently streaming exclusively on Stan, is from executive producers Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. In what should be a high-stakes sting operation, NO ACTIVITY celebrates the mundane. Set against the world of a major drug cartel bust, the series follows two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven’t really clicked; and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space considering they’ve only just met.
Nick Forward, Stan’s Chief Content Officer said “The first US season of NO ACTIVITY continued the success of the Original Australian series, and was a huge hit with Stan subscribers, featuring some of the biggest names in global comedy. We can’t wait to see where Trent, Patrick and the team take these characters next.”
“As CBS All Access’ first original comedy series, NO ACTIVITY flipped conventional storytelling on its head by showcasing some of the world’s best comedic talent as they hilariously explored the mundane lives of every day cops and criminals,” said Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President, Original Content for CBS All Access. “While the first season pushed boundaries and broke rules, we are confident that Trent O’Donnell and Patrick Brammall, along with their partners at Funny Or Die and Gary Sanchez Productions, have just scratched the surface and will deliver a new season that continues to elevate this as a truly one-of-a-kind series.”
The cast of the first season of the US adaptation of NO ACTIVITY included co-developer Patrick Brammall and Tim Meadows, along with guest stars Mark Berry, Arturo Castro, Mackenzie Davis, Bridget Everett,Will Ferrell, Darren Gilshenan, Travis Guba, Jake Johnson, Sunita Mani, Jason Mantzoukas, Adrian Martinez, Jesse Plemons, Fred Pohl, Alex Rodriguez, Amy Sedaris, J.K. Simmons, Courtenay Taylor, Michaela Watkins and Daniel Zolghadri.
NO ACTIVITY is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Funny Or Die, Jungle and Gary Sanchez Productions, and is based on the Stan Original series of the same name produced by Jungle and is currently streaming exclusively on Stan. The series is co-developed and executive produced by Trent O’Donnell and Patrick Brammall, alongside executive producers Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Jason Burrows and Joe Farrell. Trent O’Donnell directed all episodes.
