NEW YORK (AP) -- Viacom's Comedy Central is picking up "The Onion Sports Network" series, a satire on the world of sports.
The half-hour series will premiere in the first quarter.
Comedy Central bills the pilot and 10-episode series as taking on "teams, players, leagues, sycophantic fans, ridiculous products and over-hyped coverage."
The series is based on the Onion Sports Network's online videos.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
