The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert is launching a new animated series on Showtime which will apparently be devoted to making fun of Donald Trump.

It’s no secret that Stephen Colbert is a thorn in the side of Donald Trump. Unfortunately for the president, that thorn is about to dig its way in just a little bit deeper.

Recently, several news outlets such as Refinery29 began reporting on an upcoming animated series on the Showtime network. Colbert will be co-executive producing the series along with Chris Licht, who currently runs Colbert’s Late Show. The new series will have ten total episodes and is set to premiere in the fall.

As of now, no title for the show has yet been revealed. Details on the plot are also vague, other than the fact that Trump will serve as the focus. Will this be an animated series using the “Cartoon Donald Trump” character which sometimes shows up on The Late Show? That seems to be the case, as one of Cartoon Trump’s animators will also be coming along.

Trump is already a cartoon, so this should be easy.

Colbert’s comments in a statement indicate that this will be “mockumentary” style, perhaps a “reality show” set in the White House? “I’m honored that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world,” Colbert says, teasing what we’ll see on the program.
