truTV Renews Adam Ruins Everything
Turner network truTV has renewed eight of its shows in addition to greenlighting five more and putting four into development, the network announced during their upfront presentation in New York on Friday.
New seasons of “Impractical Jokers,” “Jon Glaser Loves Gear,” “The Carbonaro Effect,” “Hack My Life,” and “Comedy Knockout” will be joined in the 2017-2018 season by new shows including “Laff Mobb’s Laff Tracks,” “At Home with Amy Sedaris,” and “Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters,” among others. The network’s development pipeline includes projects from Molly Austin and Shamikah Martinez, Liza Treyger, The Kloons, and Rose Schlossberg.
truTV underwent an extensive rebrand that began in October 2014. In late 2016, the network unveiled a new tag line – Funny because its tru – highlighting its commitment to both scripted and unscripted comedy.
“Three years ago, when we announced our plan to totally reinvent truTV as a comedy network, people thought we were nuts and it would never work – but at least they were nice about it,” said Chris Linn, president of truTV. “Now, when we look at the quality and diversity in our programming slate and the talent we’re bringing to our network – not to mention the strong momentum and high engagement we’re building among our fans – we are incredibly proud of the work that’s been done and how far we’ve come in a short time. Not only have we completely changed the programming slate, but truTV has evolved into a distinct brand that appeals not only to a higher level of talent, but also to more premium audiences and advertisers.”
