“Chappelle Show” Halts Production

‘Chappelle’ comes to a halt (Knoxville News)

There’s trouble on the set of Chappelle’s Show.

Comedy Central sent out a quick and short e-mail to the media just a few minutes ago. Here is the e-mail: “Comedy Central has suspended production on the third season of ‘Chappelle’s Show’ until further notice. All parties are optimistic that production will resume in the near future. The third season will not premiere on May 31st as originally scheduled.”

Interesting. Dave Chappelle Renewed for $50 million back in August, so I don’t think it was the money.
