TBS Orders Pilot Based on Long-Running Panel Show Deadline
TBS has ordered a pilot based on "Have I Got News for You," a BBC panel show that has been on the air in the U.K. for 22 years, reports Deadline.com.
The pilot was shot with comedian Sam Seder hosting and comedians Sherrod Small and Michael Ian Black as team captains. The program features a guest host and two two-person teams, with a focus on taking a satiric angle on current events and tabloid reports, the story says. It's along the lines of the popular U.S. radio show "Wait Wait … Don't Tell Me!"
Here's a clip of the U.K. show featuring "Sherlock's" Benedict Cumberbatch as guest host:
