Drunk History picked up by Comedy Central

Popular internet series Drunk History has been commissioned for eight episodes on US cable channel, Comedy Central.

The series was originally made for Will Ferrell's website, Funny or Die and has featured actors such as Jim Carrey, Jack Black and Zooey Deschanel.

Drunk History features inebriated narrators describing historical events.

Co-producer Adam McKay said: "Will (Ferrell) and I have always believed booze brings out truth. Sometimes that truth involves hitting on airport bar janitors or eating cheese fries at 4am.

"But in this case, we hope that truth will shine on our nation’s history."

The series will air in the summer on Comedy Central.
