Move over “Who’s Line Is iIt Anyway?”. Improv comedy will get a little bit more out of this world as NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” host and NCredible Entertainment owner Nick Cannon is joining forces with SyFy to create a new improv comedy show. Read on to learn more about this story.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will be one hour long and will be produced by Nick Cannon’s NCredible Entertainment and Michael Goldman.
In the fashion of “Who’s Line Is It Anyway?”, the show will be recorded in front of a live audience. The show will feature a group of four to six known comedians who will go against several guest teams. The guest teams will undergo a casting process for a chance to get into the show. Once there, the two teams will compete for the most laughs as they test their skills in improvisational comedy in science fiction or fantasy related sketches. The new show, unfortunately, does not have a confirmed air date as of the moment.
Co-executive producer Nick Cannon is no stranger to producing television shows, as he has the 2005 improvisational show, “Wild N’ Out,” under his belt. His NCredible Entertainment company is also producing other shows, such as the revival of “Wild N’ Out” on MTV, “Teen Nick Top 10” and Nickolodeon’s “React to That.”
This is not the first time that SyFy has attempted to bring variety or talk shows to the network, as it will also be having a new talk show with Will Wheaton(“Star Trek: The Next Generation”) as the host. In this show, Will Wheaton will be discussing everything and anything geek — science fiction movies, books, films and more.
What do you think about this new improv comedy show? Will it be a hit or a miss? One thing’s for sure, science fiction and fantasy fans will probably be the ones who will truly appreciate the new show.
