Show is hosted by Iliza Shlesinger and produced by Renegade 83 Entertainment. David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe are exec producers.

“Excused,” which has signed on with a handful of television groups, will air on Fox’s WWOR-TV, in New York CBS’ KCAL-TV in Los Angeles and Weigel Broadcasting’s WCIU-TV in Chicago.
