TruTV said at TCA today that some big names will pop up in the upcoming season of Billy on the Street, which bows in the fall. The sketch series has lined up Emmy winners Jon Hamm and John Oliver, Oscar winner Lupita N’yong’o, Aziz Ansari and Seth Rogen, among others, for Season 5 appearances.
The Funny or Die-produced series stars unfiltered and unapologetic comedian Billy Eichner as he hits the streets of New York City to test unsuspecting passersby. Guests on the show’s recently wrapped fourth season included Chris Pratt, Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, Anna Kendrick, Sarah Jessica Parker and Julianne Moore. The series is executive-produced by Mike Farah, CEO of Funny Or Die, along with Eichner, Anna Wenger and Doug Brady.
In Adam Ruins Everything, host and comedian Adam Conover uncovers and then unpacks the hidden truth behind everything you thought you knew about the world. This fall, Cooper brings that same approach to the presidential election in an hourlong special that explains everything you need to know before entering the booth on Election Day. TruTV’s Adam Ruins Everything election special will air at 10 PM October 25. The second half of its first season kicks off August 23, with Cooper tackling topics ranging from football and weddings to drugs and prison. The series is produced by Big Breakfast with Conover, Sam Reich, Spencer Griffin and Jon Cohen serving as executive producers.
