A Donald Trump show will be hitting the television sets this year. And no, it is not The Apprentice.

Late night show host Stephen Colbert has announced that he will be co-producing and voice acting in an animated satire about President Trump.

According to Reuters, the animated series, which still does not have a title, will be a reimagining of Trump’s days before his historic presidential run and a satirical take on the current state of his administration in the White House.

“I know a lot of people wanted to do this and I'm honored that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world,” Colbert said in a statement.

So far, no other member of the voice cast has been announced.

How the Donald Trump show looks may have already been previewed in Colbert’s own late night show. Clips of an animated Trump with Colbert voicing Trump have been seen in a few episode segments since the election season last year.

Colbert has been one of the prominent critics of President Trump in the entertainment industry. The opening monologues of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is often an opportunity for Colbert to criticize Trump especially with regards to the controversies hounding the administration including the Russian hacking, Sean Spicer’s resignation, and Trump, Jr.’s email dump issues.

This has caused his show’s ratings to rise steadily this year to become one of the top late-night presentations, something that was unimaginable a year before when he was still stumbling through his new role.

Trump and Late Night TV

It can be remembered that even before the announcement of the Donald Trump show, the current US President already had a contentious relationship with late night television.

In May, Time posted that he called Colbert a “no-talent guy” who talks “filthy.” Seth Meyers, James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel and other late night hosts have also taken shots at him.

Variety also reports that Trump has already surpassed Bill Clinton for a record that he may not be too pleased about: most joked-about President on late night.

A research made by the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University has counted a running total of 1,060 jokes about him this year.

This puts him on track to surpass the Bill Clinton-targeted jokes at 1,717.

The Donald Trump show will be making its debut on the cable channel Showtime this fall. The network will announce the premiere date in the coming weeks.
