‘Billy on the Street’ Renewed for Season 5 on TruTV

TruTV has renewed Billy Eichner’s “Billy on the Street” for a fifth season.

The Turner-owned cable net has also increased the episode order for the first season of Adam Conover’s “Adam Ruins Everything.” Both announcements were made Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif.

Billy on the Street” features Eichner and celebrity guests running and/or speed-talking through the streets of New York City as they answer provoking questions like “What does Katy Perry’s cat care about?” and if New Yorkers recognize Chris Pratt.

Produced by Funny Or Die, the 10-episode fifth season of “Billy” will premiere in late 2016. Executive producers are Mike Farah, president of production for Funny Or Die, along with Anna Wenger, Doug Brady and Eichner.

Adam Ruins Everything” is based on the CollegeHumor original series and features Conover serving as a know-it-all wet blanket who uses comedy, history and science to dispel widespread misconceptions. Season 1 will return in late 2016 with 14 additional half-hour episodes. The series is produced by Big Breakfast with Conover, Sam Reich, Spencer Griffin, and Jon Cohen serving as executive producers.

TruTV also announced its partnership with Big Breakfast on a pilot order for the Emily Axford comedy “No Dumb Questions” (working title). The series follows a group of journalists who pose the questions you didn’t think to ask, but once you hear them, you have to know the answers. Reich, Griffin, and Cohen are EPs.

“Billy came to TruTV from Fusion last season. It, along with “Adam,” started on TruTV after the Turner network rebranded itself as a hub for unique comedies.
