Have The Chaser passed their use by date? This is now the second format they’re involved in the localisation of, though it’s not really hurting them. The proof will be in the pudding. Get along and catch a taping if you can. From the press release:
Channel Seven is pleased to announce the comedy panel show about lying, The Unbelievable Truth, will go into production this week.
Brought to you by Julian Morrow, Craig Reucassel and Andrew Hansen (The Hamster Wheel, The Chaser’s War On Everything) and British comedy guru Graeme Garden (The Goodies), The Unbelievable Truth is a game where comedians try to trick each other into believing lies while smuggling unbelievable but true facts past each other.
Craig is in the host chair, while Andrew and Julian feature as regular liars amongst an array of guest comedians both familiar and new.
“The most bizarre fact in the entire series is that Channel Seven have agreed to make a show with us involved,” said Executive Producer Julian Morrow. “But I suppose it is called The Unbelievable Truth.”
Seven’s Head of Production, Brad Lyons said: “I liked it better when Seven was getting injunctions to stop these guys being on TV”.
The Unbelievable Truth begins filming this week, and will add to a busy 2012 for Giant Dwarf’s TV production commitments.
