“Fameless” premiered this past July, and outperformed the Turner-owned network’s summer primetime average.
The series is described as a new take on the prank genre, proving just how far people will go for a moment in the spotlight. Featuring an unsuspecting group of wannabe stars who think they’ve been cast on an actual reality show, each episode puts a team of improv actors up to a new challenge whether it’s acting as a game show host to a survival show contestant or home makeover expert — but there’s a twist: one of the contestants is real.
“Fameless” is one of many comedy shows on TruTV’s slate including the popular “Billy on the Street” and “Impractical Jokers.”
Half sketch show and half prank show, “Fameless” is exec produced by Spade, Ben Silverman of Electus, and Entertainment One’s Tara Long and Kevin Healey.
