From the producers of "American Idol," the improvisational hit comedy series that originated in Australia, "Thank God You’re Here," comes to America this Spring. Hosted by David Alan Grier ("In Living Color") and presided over by judge, Dave Foley ("NewsRadio," "Kids In The Hall"), "Thank God You’re Here" showcases the improvisational skills of a group of four brave actors each week, as they walk into a live sketch without a script, their only armor and unforeseen and unexplained wardrobe change. The only thing the celebrity can count on when walking into the scenario is a desperate greeting from a fellow actor in the skit, proclaiming, "Thank God You’re Here!" Taped in front of a live audience, the group of actors in the pilot include Jennifer Coolidge ("For Your Consideration," "Best In Show"), Bryan Cranston ("Malcom in the Middle"), Joel McHale (E! Entertainment’s, "The Soup") and Wayne Knight ("Seinfeld"). "Thank God You’re Here" is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO of FremantleMedia North America ("American Idol"), is executive producer. Fax Bahr
and Adam Small
("The Jamie Kennedy Experiment," "Mad TV") are executive producers. David Alan Grier is producer.
