True Story With Ed And Randall: Release Date, Cast, And More

(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

After the seven season run of the hybrid dramatization/improv comedy show "Drunk History," the forever-addictive nature of dramatized re-enactments on shows like "Sex Sent Me to the ER," and the comedic reactionary storytelling history podcast "The Dollop," Peacock's upcoming series "True Story with Ed and Randall" looks to marry the concepts by hearing real life stories and reacting to them in real time, while interspersed with dramatized re-enactments of the story at hand.

The art of storytelling is the basis of all forms of entertainment we enjoy today, and it's exciting to see a show really go back to the basics and allow regular people to share the stories that make their lives a little more interesting. Here's everything to know about "True Story with Ed and Randall" before the series debut.

Peacock has been riding the struggle bus in the streaming wars, but has consistently produced some of the best shows on television, even if the viewing numbers aren't there to back up the quality. With well-known names like Ed Helms ("The Office") and Randall Park ("WandaVision") as the hosts, hopefully this will inspire more people to subscribe to the streaming service to check it out.
