Who knew selling marijuana could be a family business? TruTV apparently did, as it’s the subject of their latest series, Medicine Man.
How does a faded Missouri family with the state’s longest-running variety show recapture fame and America’s heartland heart? By singing more, of course.
Imagine your standard Kardashian-style reality family drama with one uniquely insane, Smash-ing element: improvised music during confessionals. That’s the approach truTV is taking to what the network is calling the “first-ever reality musical.” Branson Famous is set behind the scenes at the Baldknobbers Jamboree in Branson, MO, and stars the Mabe family, who are employing every tactic available to cling to their legacy revue as it slips further into financial decline (and a “new sexy singer in town” definitely does not bode well either).
The series premieres on truTV in December and with it comes one of the most bizarre (yet strangely intriguing) concepts you’ll see on TV this year. Below, check out EW’s exclusive first look at the country-fried ambition that is Branson Famous. READ FULL STORY
The year’s fakest TV show has found its judging panel.
Harry Shum Jr., Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, and Michael Curry have all signed on for truTV’s Fake Off, a new competition series about the captivating art of faking. Hosted by actor and dancer Robert Hoffman (Step Up 2: The Streets), the series combines Kabuki theater, acrobatics, dance, costume, and illusion as teams are challenged to recreate and reimagine iconic moments in pop culture, all in hopes of being named America’s Fake-Off champion. It’s sort of like the Oscar-nominated film The Act of Killing, except a lot less violent and bloody. READ FULL STORY
The pranksters of truTV’s hidden camera comedy series Impractical Jokers are leaving the city and heading someplace rife for comedy: the country!
As the New York boys head to Texas (in an episode aptly titled “Bigger in Texas”), the funny foursome do everything in their power to make life in the Lone Star State as difficult as it can possibly be. Joe, Sal, Q and Murr throw Texas tourists for a loop when they take over the rodeo and attempt to sell their cowboy gear and teach ranchhand skills — to a ridiculously silly degree.
Check out EW’s clip from the special “on the road” episode below, which finds Joe and Sal trying to obey Murr and Q’s commands as they pull the rug over a group of unsuspecting tourists — by giving quite likely the worst cowboy lasso lesson known to man. READ FULL STORY
