Ed Helms and Randall Park Team Up for NBC Series True Story

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ed Helms and Randall Park are teaming up for the NBC series True Story, a quasi-comedy series that will feature celebrities recreating unbelievable true stories in “heightened re-enactments.”

“True Story is the perfect combination of heart, humor and ingenuity that has become synonymous with the NBC Alternative brand,” said Meredith Ahr, president of NBC’s Alternative and Reality Group. “We believe that truth can be stranger (and funnier!) than fiction, and Ed and Randall are the ultimate duo to help real people bring their incredible stories to life.”

Each hour-long episode will feature Helms and Park talking with people about their extraordinary life experiences. These stories will then be brought to life via dramatic, star-studded re-enactments.

Helms will serve as executive producer on the six-episode series, which is based on an Australian series True Story with Hamish & Andy. The original show’s creators, Tim Bartley, Hamish Blake, Andy Lee and Ryan Shelton will also executive produce.

Helms also has the comedy Rutherford Falls in development for NBC’s upcoming streaming service.

“I can’t wait to bring True Story to American audiences with my buddy Randall Park,” Helms said. “It’s an incredibly warm, hilarious and kind-spirited show that celebrates the lost art of laughing at ourselves … with a little help from epic re-enactments.”

Added Park: “I’m so excited to be part of a show that combines three of my favorite things: great stories from real people, my pal Ed Helms and couches.”

Helms is known for his performances in The Hangover trilogy, and on NBC’s The Office. Parks starred in Ant Man & the Wasp for Marvel Studios, and currently features in the ABC series Fresh Off the Boat.
