BURBANK � February 26, 2007 -- NBC's new improv comedy challenge series "Thank God You're Here" � hosted by David Alan Grier ("In Living Color") alongside presiding improv judge Dave Foley ("NewsRadio") -- will premiere on Monday, April 9 (9-10 p.m. ET) and Monday, April 16 (9-10 p.m. ET), preceded by "Deal or No Deal" (8-9 p.m. ET). The wildly unpredictable series will then resume in its regular day and time on Wednesday, April 18 (8-9 p.m. ET).

From the producers of "American Idol," the series originated in Australia, and continues to be Australia's #1 hit for the past two years. "Thank God You're Here" showcases the improvisational skills of a group of four different brave actors each week as they walk into the high-wire act known as improv � each one entering into a live sketch without a net or script -- their only armor and motivation is an 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 upon their arrival, "Thank God You're Here!" This is the only show on television that gives the performers costumes, sets and props�but no script! Taped in front of a live audience, the series' pilot episode features Jennifer Coolidge ("For Your Consideration," "Best in Show"), Bryan Cranston ("Malcolm in the Middle"), Joel McHale (E! Entertainment's "The Soup") and Wayne Knight ("Seinfeld").

Other guest stars trying their hand at improv in subsequent episodes include Fred Willard, Tom Arnold, Fran Drescher, Tom Green, Chelsea Handler, George Takei (NBC's "Heroes"), Shannon Elizabeth, Paul Rodriguez, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Mo'Nique, Angela Kinsey (NBC's "The Office") and Alanis Morrisette. Former "Seinfeld" star Jason Alexander also joins the fun as well as former "Saturday Night Live" star Ana Gasteyer as they both return to NBC.

"Thank God You're Here" is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO of FremantleMedia North America ("American Idol"), along with Fax Bahr and Adam Small ("The Jamie Kennedy Experiment," "Mad TV") are executive producers. David Alan Grier is producer.
