Anthony Anderson to Host all-new comedy series on Animal Planet
Emmy-nominated actor and comedian Anthony Anderson has new television gig. The Black-ish star will host an all-new series, “Animal Review” (working title), a one-hour weekly comedy-variety series that will celebrate all the amazing ways animals have captivated our hearts, minds and funny bones, premiering in 2017. Produced by Comedy Dynamic executive producer Brian Volk-Weiss. The series was developed by Animal Planet’s Kurt Tondorf. Anderson, whose is the host of ABC’s game show, To Tell the Truth, will curate and comment on the funniest, most-shocking and emotional moments out there. The show will feature celebrities (and their pets) and animal experts (and their companions), while engaging viewers in new and ongoing conversations about animals as they pertain to pop culture, politics. Comedian correspondents will also provide a behind the scenes glimpse into some of the most talked about places we find our furry friends. Always fun and always entertaining, “Animal Review” is a show for all audiences and animal lovers of any age. “Some of my favorite TV moments have been watching iconic TV hosts like Johnny Carson and David Letterman interact with their animal guests. They are some truly classic unscripted moments that have made TV history,” Anderson said.
