Showtime has renewed Tracey Ullman's State of the Union for a second season. The network also announced The Mark Wooten Project, a six-episode series of character-driven sketches by the British-born comedian.

"Tracey Ullman is the veteran genius who continues to impress us with her versatility, while Marc Wootton is the up-and-comer who will surprise our audience with his own unique voice. This is an embarrassment of riches for us in the comedy department," said Showtime Entertainment chief Robert Greenblatt. - J.R. Whalen
