The new Peacock original, True Story, is a six-episode hybrid alternative-scripted series, based on the Australian megahit True Story with Hamish & Andy. Everyday Americans will sit down with Ed Helms and Randall Park to share their most extraordinary and unbelievably true stories for the first time.
As the stories unfold, events are humorously brought to life by a star-studded cast of comedians and actors in heightened, dramatized re-enactments of cinematic proportions. In a first-of-its-kind format, True Story will give real people their very own biopic.
Helms described True Story as “a series that recreates real people’s real stories.” It is executive produced by Tim Bartley, Hamish Blake, Andy Lee, Ryan Shelton, Helms, Mike Falbo, Park, and Tracey Baird, who will also serve as showrunner.
The series couldn’t have better co-hosts! We are definitely excited about this one.
