Chappelle tells Comedy Central he needs more time

(Posted July 17, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES - There’s still no word from Comedy Central on when “Chappelle’s Show” will return to the network, more than two months after Dave Chappelle abruptly stopped work on the series and essentially disappeared.

The third season of the top-rated sketch show had been scheduled to begin May 31 under a $50 million deal that also covered a fourth season. But that didn’t happen. Instead, Chappelle flew to South Africa, saying he needed a break.

“The ball’s in Dave’s court,” Doug Herzog, president of Comedy Central, told The Hollywood Reporter after the channel’s presentation in Beverly Hills as part of the Television Critics Assn. July press tour.
