Forget about the power shifting on the late night talk circuit and the not-really-a-web-series teasers for Jimmy Fallon’s new NBC gig. The web is about to get its own celeb-powered talk show Anytime With Bob Kushell when it premieres this Thursday on Crackle. Part of Sony Pictures Television’s recently announced slate of original web series programming that kicked off earlier this month, the weekly series is hosted by writer-comedian Bob Kushell (Samantha Who) and boasts some clickable talent including John Stamos (ER, Full House), who (rumor has it) will be ‘undressing’ on the show, though there is no information on how far he will go. Other stars making the trip to Bob’s garage set: Jennifer Esposito (on Christmas Day), Neil Patrick Harris (on New Year’s Day), Zach Levi, and Christina Applegate to name a few.
Emmy-nominated Kushell is executive producing with Russell Arch under the production company Killer Custard. The series promises to deliver everything you expect from a network late-night talk show: short monologue, comedy bits, full in-studio band, and celebrity interviews—only its on the web, all in a “comically compact five minute package” filmed in (Bob’s) garage in Van Nuys, CA.
Other series premieres in Crackle’s lineup this week include yesterday’s kickoff of The Groundlings‘ second 13-week season with “The Groundlings Interview,” and today the second season of Owen Benjamin Presents with “Owen Benjamin Music Video: Boobs.” For a full listing of the Crackle’s full week of upcoming web programming check here.
