Lauren Caspian is NPR's third most popular host. He's a well-meaning, hypocritical nimrod, just like you and me. He's also a stop motion puppet. Each episode follows the making of an episode of Lauren's show In the Know, in which Lauren conducts in-depth interviews with real world human guests. Lauren collaborates with a diverse crew of NPR staff. They are also puppets and nimrods.

"In the Know will capture the conversations so many of us have in our daily lives in a heightened, hilarious way" said Lisa Katz, President Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "We're excited to be working with the very best in the business in Mike, Greg, Zach and Brandon, and our partners at Universal Television."

"We're thrilled to be working on this unique and inventive series with such an accomplished team and can't wait for audiences to be In the Know," said Erin Underhill, President, Universal Television.
