Stephen Colbert has produced an animated Trump series which will be aired on cable this fall.

Showtime announced the 10-episode series, which is still to be named, on Thursday, stating it wold feature cartoon characters of Donald Trump and his family members.

USA today noted the series would present the "truish adventures of Trump's confidants and bon vivants — family, top associates, heads of government, golf pros and anyone else straying into this orbit."

The series is executive produced by Colbert and based on previous work in which the "Late Show" host pokes fun at the Trump household.

According to Deadline, the forthcoming series was inspired by an episode of Colbert’s "Live Election Night Democracy" and based on a recurring character he introduced on "The Late Show" through which he "hilariously and pointedly deconstructs life in the White Household: family members, insiders, world leaders, even rival democrats."

Speaking about the series, Colbert told Deadline, "I know a lot of people wanted to do this, and I’m honored that the Cartoon President invited our documentary crew into his private world," Colbert said. "I’ve seen some of the footage, and I look forward to sharing the man behind the MAGA."

Colbert will be joined by "Late Show" colleague, Chris Licht, as executive producer as well as Tim Luecke, who assisted in creating an initial version of the animated Trump aired on Colbert’s show.

"Showtime" president and CEO, David Nevins, told Variety that Colbert and Licht worked well together.

"Stephen and Chris have an uncanny genius for deconstructing the world of President Trump, and this series opens a new realm for them," he said

"Their vision will produce a comedy that makes waves, gets attention, and plays great on our networks, including our streaming service."
