The US adaptation of True Story with Hamish & Andy, co-hosted by The Office and Rutherford Falls star Ed Helms and Fresh Off the Boat’s Randall Park is headed to NBCU streaming platform Peacock.
Six episodes will be produced by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon, Pacific Electric Picture Co. and Universal Television Alternative Studio and exec produced by Tim Bartley, Hamish Blake, Andy Lee, Ryan Shelton, Ed Helms, Mike Falbo, Randall Park and Tracey Baird, who will also serve as showrunner.
The original series screened on Nine in 2017 and 2018 where it was well received. So after their separate TV shows (Lego Masters / The Cube) will viewers get to see them back on screen together anytime soon?
“To be honest we’ve got no solid plans at the moment, but we are fine,” Hamish Blake recently told TV Tonight.
“Our podcast is our complete passion. We just adore that world and we’re having a ball doing that.”
Blake has recently relocated to Sydney with writer wife Zoe Foster, explaining that the time was right.
“The short story is: wife’s work, wife’s family, general adventure. But why not? I’ve lived in Melbourne for 40 years, Melbourne will always be my home. The kids are little, work is booming up there for my wife and we thought, ‘You know what, we’ve probably always known we would do a stint in Sydney.’
“I think it’ll be a great adventure.”
