What’s funnier than seeing the world’s best comedians up close and personal at an annual Canadian comedy confab? A panel of network development executives talking about comedy. Well, not quite, but here we are. In addition to eating our late night bagels (you’re welcome), join truTV development executives Simmy KustanowitzRohit Sang and Deb Savo as they discuss the comedy network’s programming slate. From comedic hidden-camera prank series like Impractical Jokers and The Carbonaro Effect, to brain candy shows like Adam Ruins Everything and Hack My Life to scripted projects like I’m SorryThose Who Can’t., the upcoming At Home with Amy Sedaris, to its first-ever live series The Chris Gethard Show, truTV is finding comedy in a broad portfolio. And, with the network always looking for its next big thing, let’s talk about what the development team looks for in a project and what makes it a fit for truTV.
