NBC BRINGS TO LIFE THE FUNNIEST AND MOST UNBELIEVABLE STORIES YOU'VE NEVER HEARD WITH "TRUE STORY," STARRING ED HELMS AND RANDALL PARK
From Warner Horizon Unscripted Television Comes a New Six-Episode Hybrid Series Based on Australian Hit Show "True Story with Hamish & Andy"
NBC has ordered "True Story," a hilarious new series co-hosted by award-winning actor-comedians Ed Helms ("The Office," "The Hangover") and Randall Park ("Fresh Off the Boat," "Always Be My Maybe"). Helms will also executive produce.
Based on the critically acclaimed Australian megahit "True Story with Hamish & Andy," "True Story" is a six-episode hybrid alternative-scripted series in which everyday Americans sit down with Helms and Park to share their most extraordinary and unbelievably true stories for the first time.
As the stories unfold, events are humorously brought to life by a star-studded cast of comedians and actors in heightened, dramatized re-enactments of cinematic proportions. In a first-of-its-kind format, "True Story" will give real people their very own biopic with well-known celebrities cast in the title role.
Each hourlong episode will feature two real-life stories. A premiere date will be announced in the future.
"I can't wait to bring 'True Story' to American audiences with my buddy Randall Park," Helms said. "It's an incredibly warm, hilarious and kind-spirited show that celebrates the lost art of laughing at ourselves ... with a little help from epic reenactments."
"I'm so excited to be a part of a show that combines three of my favorite things: great stories from real people, my pal Ed Helms and couches," Park said.
"'True Story' is the perfect combination of heart, humor and ingenuity that has become synonymous with the NBC Alternative brand," said Meredith Ahr, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. "We believe that truth can be stranger (and funnier!) than fiction, and Ed and Randall are the ultimate duo to help real people bring their incredible stories to life."
"'True Story' is an entirely new kind of funny television," said Mike Darnell, President, Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television. "Ed and Randall are innovators on the comedy circuit making them the perfect combination to headline this show for NBC."
"True Story" is casting now and NBC is looking for everyday people with hilarious stories. To submit your story or nominate a friend or family member, please visit www.truestorycasting.com.
