For the first time on Indian broadcast television, Zee Cafe, one of the leading general English entertainment channels in India, presents the animated half-hour parody series 'Our Cartoon President'. The series follows the tru-ish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and his merry band of advisors and family members. Created and Executive Produced by multiple Emmy winner Stephen Colbert, 'Our Cartoon President' premieres on 4th July, weeknights at 8.30 only on Zee Cafe.

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 showrunner R.J. Fried. Tim Luecke serves as lead animator and co-executive producer. Matt Lappin serves as consulting producer.

Commenting on the show, Aparna Bhosle, Business Cluster Head - Premium channels, ZEEL said, "At Zee Cafe, our endeavor has always been to enable our viewers with superior content which is both entertaining and intellectually stimulating. It brings us immense pleasure to present the animated satire 'Our Cartoon President'. Riding on the Trump wave, the show is extremely topical and will cater to audiences who enjoy a healthy dose of parody. Coupled with the multi-faceted and supremely talented Stephen Colbert's execution, we are sure the show will be immensely enjoyed by our audience."

Don't forget to watch the premiere of 'Our Cartoon President' 4th July, weeknights at 8:30, only on Zee Cafe.
