True Story With Ed And Randall Trailer: Ed Helms And Randall Park Host A Hybrid Scripted And Unscripted Comedy Series

Funny men Ed Helms and Randall Park are teaming up for a new Peacock series, "True Story with Ed and Randall." The Warner Bros. production is billed as a comedy series with both scripted and unscripted elements, and all six of the show's 60-minute episodes will premiere exclusively on NBCUniversal's streaming service Peacock on the same day in January 2022.

Helms and Park serve as the hosts of this series, and in that capacity, they'll be sitting down with ordinary people to unlock their inner raconteurs and hear their remarkable true-life tales. Each story will also come to life in reenactments, and you can get a taste of the series with the first trailer below.
