2014 Variety Breakthrough Of The Year Awards - Show
CC is boosting its XX: Comedy Central has renewed "Inside Amy Schumer," and greenlit two new female-centric shows.

The network announced Monday that "Schumer," the wildly popular sketch show fronted by the titular comedienne, will be back for a third season. Comedy Central also ordered new seasons of series "Review," starring Andy Daly, and animated show "TripTank."

In addition to those renewals, the network has also picked up two new shows to series, and both are fronted by women.

The first, called "Another Period," stars Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome as sisters from a wealthy Rhode Island family at the turn of the 20th century. According to the show's official synopsis, the sisters at the heart of "Period" "care only about how they look, what parties they attend and becoming famous, which is a lot harder in 1902." The pilot features celeb cameos from Michael Ian Black, Jason Ritter, Tom Lennon, Bret Gelman, and Paget Brewster; the series is co-executive produced by Jeremy Konner, one of the creators of "Drunk History," and Ben Stiller.

The other new series, "Idiotsitter," focuses on, per Entertainment Weekly, "a straitlaced woman (Charlotte Newhouse) who is tapped to babysit a ridiculously rich 'womanchild' (Jillian Bell) who is under house arrest in her father's mansion." "Idiotsitter," which was co-created by Newhouse and Bell, began life as a six-episode digital series for Comedy Central.

No premiere dates for any of the shows yet, but we'll be eagerly awaiting their debuts.
