Comedy Central has greenlit two new parody series, including a fake magazine news show from David Alan Grier and a send-up of reality TV, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Grier's show has the working title David Alan Grier's Chocolate News, and as such promises not to shy away from controversy. The other show, tentatively titled Reality Bites, will spoof the reality-TV genre with comedians participating in fake competition shows.

Reality will air this summer, while Chocolate is scheduled for early 2009. - Mickey O'Connor
