Remember how I told you Drew Carey would be rounding up his improv comedy pals for a new show on GSN?
Here are the details:
GSN has ordered 40 episodes, to start airing in spring 2011, with Drew Carey and Joe Roth producing. The show does not yet have a title, but it'll include Carey and his friends, plus "surprise" guest stars, performing half-hours of improvised sketches with audience participation. It'll tape in January and February at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. So, essentially, if you liked Whose Line is it Anyway? and the live touring shows of Drew Carey's Improv All-Stars, then this should be a lot like that.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm thrilled to be working with GSN‚Äîthis is a real passion project for me,‚Äù Carey said in a press release. ‚ÄúMy cast and the live audience and I will be having more fun than probably should be legal and, thanks to GSN, fans across the country will get to be a part of the fun.‚Äù
