For fans of Chris Gethard who have been waiting for him to get another show, this one’s for you. Based on his popular podcast of the same name, Beautiful/Anonymous is getting a series order over on Topic.
“Based on the popular podcast of the same name, host and comedian Chris Gethard tweets out a phone number and has a half hour conversation with whoever gets to him first and the conversation will be illustrated by different imagery such as still photos and video footage. Chris’ innate curiosity about people and their lives as well as his ability to disarm all of those he speak to, leads to a conversation you never knew you wanted to experience but are so glad you had. What unfolds could be a shocking confession, a therapeutic discovery, a philosophical debate about an opposing view or a series of funny and relatable stories. Past podcast episodes have revealed a survivor of the Las Vegas mass shooting who turned tragedy into positive action, a mother calling from a Children’s Hospital awaiting the results of her daughter’s cancer scan and the pride of a young woman who not only came out to her family but got her Trump-supporting neighbor to help her hang a pride flag out her front door.“
Beautiful/Anonymous premieres on Topic February 11th.
