Back in February we told you about Marlon Wayans jumping into television with a brand new comedy competition series titled Funniest Wins, set for TBS.
This week the show was officially green -lit for eight episodes, and we hear that the series premiere will be Friday, June 20th at 10:00 PM.
According to our sources, the show is looking for any sort of funny whether it be sketch, stand up, improv, digital short, musical comedy, etc., as long as it’s the funniest. Thus, the title the funniest wins.
The series, which is being produced by Workaholic/Marlon and Eyeworks USA, joins TBS’s roster of comedic competition series, which already included King of the Nerds and Deal With It.
Wayans is executive producing the series, along with Rick Alvarez, Lisa Blum, JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Brant Pinvidic and Adam Kaloustian. Steve Harris will serve as producer.
