Lewis Black’s ‘Root Of All Evil’

Lewis Black is hoping to move beyond his "Back in Black" segment on Comedy Central’s "The Daily Show" with the greenlighting of a series pilot called "The Root of All Evil."

The perpetually pissed-off Black will play a TV judge, with guest comics taking the roles of opposing lawyers debating the greater of two evils in episodes with titles such as "Paris Hilton vs. Dick Cheney" and "Chick Flicks vs. Video Games."

According to Variety, the show has filmed episodes featuring comedians Patton Oswald, Greg Giraldo, Andy Daley and Paul F. Tomkins, and will be produced by Scott Carter, who also produces HBO’s "Real Time With Bill Maher."
