NBCUniversal announced plans to roll out two new scripted comedy series, which will be carried on the ad-free streaming comedy channel Seeso. The company also released video teasers for both new shows.
“Thingstarter” is described as a workplace comedy with reality elements, focusing on a startup company that develops ridiculous yet plausible products and takes them into the real world to get feedback from real people and experts. (See teaser below.) The program debuts May 19.
The company is describing “Hidden America with Jonah Ray” as “a fake travel show where the places are real but the people aren’t.” The show is set to premiere June 2. (Click here to see the teaser.)
