If you thought HBO’s Newsroom showed what it’s like to be a TV journalist, wait until you see Adult Swim’s Newsreaders. The network has released the first trailer for the new comedy series, which really dives into all the work and intense drama that goes into being a TV journalist.
Newsreaders, which is a spinoff of the Adult Swim show Children’s Hospital, follows a news magazine as they deal with the tough issues that the country faces today. Newsreaders comes from the minds of Rob Corddry, Jonathan Stern and David Wain and stars Mather Zickel as the not-so-politically correct host Louis La Fonda. If the short trailer proves anything, it’s that Newsreader has gathered an impressive list of guest stars for it’s first season, including Katie Aselton, Ed Begley Jr., Lizzy Caplan and more.
Check out the Newsreaders trailer below and be sure to tune in on Jan. 17 at midnight to catch the show’s premiere on Adult Swim.
