Imagecraft(IC) Productions continues working with Comedy Central's sketch comedy show "Key & Peele", providing production services for their hit web series "Obama/Luther". "Key & Peele" features Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who are best known for their impressive ability for improv, celebrity impressions and conjuring up original characters. The show utilizes a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments to examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, from two men used to being on the outside looking in.

Central Productions hired Imagecraft to provide all technical and camera equipment, as well as the crew for "Obama/Luther". The web originals are shot on Sony F3's with Alura lenses. Filming began in September and continues through the end of November. The topical sketches featuring Obama and his angry translator, Luther are filmed and posted weekly on Comedy Central's YouTube channel. The web series is not the first time Imagecraft has worked with Central Productions. IC was brought on board for the first season of "Key & Peele" and returned for the finale again providing the crew, as well as the engineering and camera equipment.

"Key & Peele" currently airs on Comedy Central® on Wednesday's at 10:30 pm ET/PT and the web originals of "Obama/Luther" can be found on the Comedy Central YouTube channel.
