TruTV, the network known for unscripted shows like Impractical Jokers and Billy on the Street, is looking to add more shows to its unscripted programming. The network has unveiled three new shows and a handful of new projects and specials, according to Variety.
The network is set to premiere three new unscripted series, though premiere dates have yet to be announced for them.
One of the new shows is called Jon Glaser Loves Gear, which will feature Jon Glaser, the actor and comedian, looking at different gears and inventions. The show will be 30 minutes long and truTV has ordered 10 episodes of the show so far.
Another one of the new shows set to air on the network is Lifescaping, which is going to be a sketch show that also features person-on-the-street interviews. Abbi Crutchfield and Matthew Latkiewicz have been tapped as the hosts for the first season, which will consist of 13 episodes that are each a half hour.
The third new show is set to be called Greatest Ever, which is a how-to series based on anything that is popular in today’s world, such as cute animal videos. There will be six 30 minute episodes that will be hosted by Amanda Seales.
There’s also two new scripted series that are in development at the network, tentatively called I’m Sorry and Small Victories. The network is also developing a satirical talk show that seem similar to HBO’s Last Week Tonight and TBS’ Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, which has been renewed through the end of the year.
Other shows in development include a hidden camera show from UK comedian Olivia Lee, a show from comedian Jena Friedman where her and other comedians will talk about pop culture and politics in a satirical way and a show from Kevin Pereira which is described as letting “viewers experience how amazing the future will be before it arrives, while celebrating the absurdity of everything that has led to right now,” according to Variety.
Among the specials slated to air on truTV include a new Impractical Jokers special that is expected to air sometime this fall. One of the first specials the show got was for its hundredth episode last fall, which was watched by 3.7 million viewers and was talked about on social media 86 million times. Just like last year’s special, it’s going to be live and will be featured in a two-hour long event.
TruTV mainly focuses on unscripted series to air on the network. The network’s only scripted series that has premiered so far, Those Who Can’t, has been renewed for its second season.
