Warner Media made some big announcements today, as they announced their upcoming slate for 2021.
First up is a Friday night movie series, hosted by Tiffany Haddish. Friday Night Vibes “will be ground zero for those who love movies, the culture, music and hanging out at the beauty salon and barbershop. With a mix of comedy, celebrity interviews and musical performances, Haddish, along with a resident DJ, will guide viewers through this celebration of life, cultural diversity, special behind-the-scenes moments and authentic conversation.” The movie party launches on TBS June 18th at 7:30 PM ET.
Ahead of the July 8th premiere of Impractical Joker’s ninth season, TruTV is bringing us another new Impractical Jokers series. The Impractical Jokers Award Show will follow the boys “as they honor and celebrate moments of cinematic mastery and outstanding achievement over Impractical Jokers franchise comprising 200+ episodes.” It airs July 1st at 10 PM ET on TruTV.
Next up, there’s some DIY bar building going on. Backyard Bar Wars “is a send-up of the classic home reno show combined with hilarious moments of comedian and host, Chris Distefano, roasting the builders in a way that only he can. The one thing that’s not a joke are the bars themselves – viewers can expect jaw-dropping reveals that will leave everyone watching thirsty for a second round.” The show premieres July 8th at 10:30 PM ET on TruTV.
We also have some new information about Miracle Workers: Oregon Trail. This season, set in the year 1844, “follows an idealistic small-town preacher (Radcliffe) who teams up with a wanted outlaw (Buscemi) and an adventurous prairie wife (Viswanathan) to lead a wagon train west on the Oregon Trail across an American landscape which, much like today, is fraught with both promise and peril.” The show returns to TBS July 13th at 10:30 PM ET.
And finally, we found out about some renewals. Shows that will be coming back for a second season are Chad, Fast Foodies, and Wipeout. As of now, there’s no word yet as far as when the shows listed will be returning for that second season.
A lot of great things going on to look forward to!
