NBC has picked-up six episodes of a half-hour topical alternative comedy series called “Common Sense” from All3Media-owned Studio Lambert, which will feature real people from all walks of life offering their honest opinions on the week’s news and buzzworthy events – unfiltered, and completely real.
“We can’t wait to listen in, laugh and capture the authentic, entertaining ways everyday people are reacting to the news of the week,” said Meredith Ahr, President, Universal Television Alternative Studio. “As the creator of some of the most groundbreaking formats of our time, we are honored to partner with Stephen on something so original and timely.”
The scoop: each week a cast of reoccurring characters will express their opinions on the most talked about news of that week. Duos made up of friends, colleagues or family members – will walk through their hilarious thought process and inspired understanding of what’s happening in the world. Filmed in real time and giving everyday people a chance to sound off on their opinions with a primetime show and national audience as a microphone, this format delivers topical news and water cooler moments of the week.
“Common Sense” will debut on an undisclosed date in 2017.
