Funny Or Die is launching new comedy series First Dates With Toby Harris starring Seth Morris and premiering on the recently revamped Yahoo! Screen in Spring 2012.
“The series will follow the first dates of a typical LA based single guy who has several first dates,” Dick Glover, CEO of Funny or Die, told Tubefilter. “Through these dates we will get a humorous look at various dating issues, and a different perspectives on life and situations and the funny ways the sexes interact in 2012.”
First Dates With Toby Harris promises to “take viewers on a journey of ill fated first dates with the lovable (sometimes deplorable) and always single Toby Harris. Set with Los Angeles as a back drop, each episode centers around a different woman and issue that will leave the audience bickering amongst themselves who was right and who was wrong, and how they would have handled it better! Love him or hate him, a date with Toby is a date you will always remember.”
First Dates With Toby Harris joins Funny Or Die’s expanding content slate popping up on multiple platforms beyond Funny Or Die itself.
“Funny or Die is a multi-platform, vertical integrated comedy studio so we are happy to partner with online portals, cable TV networks, broadcast networks and other distributors who are capable of bringing our work to the largest possible audiences.” Glover told Tubefilter. “Yahoo fits that bill to a “t” and is a fantastic partner for us on a project like this and, we are sure, many others in the weeks and months to come.”
Billy On The Street, starring comedian Billy Eichner, is the third of a series of shows distributed off-net, joining HBO series Funny Or Die Presents and Comedy Central’s Jon Benjamin Has a Van. Billy On The Street premieres on Fuse December 22.
