The new 10-episode parody OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT examines the quintessentially Trumpian details of the presidency and his most important relationships, and no one is safe – from his close family and confidants to key political figures from both parties and members of the media. In this parallel cartoon universe, the Commander-in-Chief opens the White House doors for an “all access” look at a typical day in the life of the President of the United States. OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT is produced by CBS Television Studios and executive produced by Colbert, Licht and Fried, who serves as showrunner. Tim Luecke serves as lead animator and co-executive producer.
