Garry Trudeau, creator of the popular comic strip "Doonesbury," has announced he is taking a hiatus from producing the strip while he works on an Internet series.
Trudeau has said the break will be for an indeterminate amount of time.
As was the case when he took a long break from "Doonesbury" last year, Trudeau will instead be writing and producing "Alpha House," a comedy about four Republican senators sharing a house. The Amazon Studios Web series, based on four real-life Capitol Hill roomies, has been picked up for a second season.
The comic strip "The Grizzwells" will replace Doonesbury in the interim in the Mail Tribune print edition. The new strip first appeared Monday.
