Some people will do anything for their 15 minutes of televised glory and David Spade plans to prove it. Spade is the star and co-executive producer of Fameless, truTV’s latest addition to its growing sketch/prank comedy stable (see also: Impractical Jokers, Friends of the People and The Carbonaro Effect, all of which are back with new episodes this month, too).
On the eight-episode summer laugher, wannabe reality stars believe they’ve been cast in a new unscripted series — perhaps an American Idol style talent competition, perhaps a Survivor-esque endurance test.
In the meantime, their costars — a team of seasoned improv actors — have concocted the scenes they will be filming and are ready to find out how long their unsuspecting “castmates” will last before they figure out that, instead of taking their first step to becoming famous, they’re really, well, still Fameless.
Fameless airs Wednesdays at 10:30/9:30 CT beginning July 29 on truTV.
