By this point, it's safe to say that Channing Tatum is more than just a pretty face. He's come a long way since first showing off his dancing chops in Step Up, proving his knack for both comedy and drama in roles like the 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike series, Foxcatcher and Hail, Caesar!. He's also a producer, with 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike under his belt- because why not.

Treading the path of comedy-world domination, Tatum may soon have another producer credit to his name as Comedy Central recently announced its 2016-17 development slate. By the sounds of the line-up, the future is looking bright.

Among the list of productions being picked up are two different series helmed by comedian Kevin Hart, one an untitled stand-up series and the other entitled Kevin Hart Presents: Hart Of The City; two projects by celebrity roasting veteran Jeff Ross doing what he does best with Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle and Jeff Ross Roasts The Police; the Will Ferrell-produced Best Seller; and two untitled projects to be co-produced by Amy Schumer.

However, a stand-out amongst the list of 37 greenlit and in-development titles is the animated series, Germany, coming to us courtesy of Hollywood's current favorite hilarious hunk, Channing Tatum. Created by Aaron Karo, the series will not only star Tatum but will have him on board as a co-producer, alongside Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan.

Deadline revealed details of the plot:

An animated series about a community of germs living in a Petri dish at the University of Berlin. Executive produced by and starring Channing Tatum, 'Germany' explores the trials and tribulations of diverse microorganisms living in a microcosm of our world – complete with political scandals, climate change and vaccination deniers. 'Germany' is a unique world in which both the laughter and the characters are contagious.

While the series sounds promising, it has so far only been given a pilot order, meaning only time will tell if Germany will be sticking around once the season begins.
