Cable News Satire FAKE NEWS WITH TED NELMS Premieres on Comedy Central on 12/13
The Fake News with Ted Nelms is exactly what it sounds like; ridiculous, made-up news that closely resembles actual news, delivered by a ridiculous, made-up anchor who closely resembles Ed Helms. It's a fast-paced one-hour special that looks like CNN with the volume off, but with the volume on is a constant stream of jokes delivered with such extreme deadpan gravitas it'll ruin viewers capacity to watch the REAL NEWS ever again without laughing. Led by Helms as Nelms, the special skewers the way news is delivered by emptying out the format and refilling it with insanity, silliness, and absolutely no factual content, throwing all its resources into the ongoing national crisis of President Trump getting stuck in an abandoned well. Because this is The Fake News.
The show stars Ed Helms, who is most known for his work on the NBC hit THE OFFICE, and films like THE HANGOVER, VACATION, and WE'RE THE MILLERS.
