Chris Rock has thankfully returned to the television industry, this time with a more behind-the-scenes role. Rock will be serving as executive producer on an upcoming Comedy Central sketch comedy series entitled "D-Raw." The series will center on Deshawn Raw --- an up-and-coming comedian whose YouTube rap battle parodies have garnered millions of views --- along with his eclectic group of friends as they use art to imitate their life experiences. 

Raw, who will also serve as co-producer of the series, brought in his creative partner to direct the pilot, which has already been greenlit by Comedy Central. Given Rock's extensive network and reputation, it's also likely that a few comedy pro's will have cameo appearances on the show. No word yet as to when the pilot will air.
