NEW YORK, February 6, 2014 - Get ready for an inside look at some of life's most intense experiences without the burden of leaving your couch, when new half-hour series "Review" premieres on Comedy Central on Thursday, March 6 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Starring Andy Daly ("Eastbound & Down") as life critic Forrest MacNeil, "Review" follows the atypical reviewer as he goes above and beyond the boring subjects like films, food or art. Forrest reviews life itself: the adrenaline rush of stealing, the dangers of drug addiction, the joys of sleeping with a celebrity, and much more. His unwavering commitment to reviewing any and every experience that his audience suggests often means his work comes at the expense of his family. Throughout the season, Forrest will answer life's most challenging questions while dealing with the unintended consequences of such a lofty goal.
In the premiere episode, Forrest takes on the big three: stealing, addiction, and the prom, all of which quickly spiral out of control. Daly heads up an impressive cast which features Jessica St. Clair ("Playing House," "Bridesmaids") as his wife Suzanne, Fred Willard (everything funny ever) as his father-in-law Jack and James Urbaniak ("Crumb") as his producer Grant. Additional guest stars include Lance Bass, Andy Richter, Ashley Tisdale, Jason Mantzoukas, Rich Fulcher, Emo Phillips, Andy Blitz and Maria Thayer.
Episodes of "Review" will be available the day after air in SD and HD on iTunes, Xbox Video, Amazon Instant Video, Sony Entertainment Network, Vudu and Verizon Flexview. Beginning February 20, the premiere episode will be available to stream on cc.com and for free on iTunes.
The "Review" Web site will feature weekly extended preview clips from the series beginning February 13. Throughout the season the site will be updated with new content including show highlights. Starting today, fans can also follow the "Review" Facebook page for the latest content from the show and follow Daly on Twitter @TVsAndyDaly.
Prior to "Review," actor/writer/producer Daly co-starred with Danny McBride in HBO's critically acclaimed comedy "Eastbound & Down." Daly was also a cast member on the Emmy(R)-nominated FOX sketch comedy "MAD TV," as well as a recurring character on Comedy Central's "Reno 911!" Daly has contributed to various sketches on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and has lent his voice to "Saturday Night Live's" "TV Funhouse" and Cartoon Network's critically acclaimed series "Adventure Time."
In addition to television, Daly has appeared in such films as "Semi-Pro," "Yogi Bear," "The Informant!" and "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." He is one of the earliest students of the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York, where he studied with Amy Poehler.
"Review" is executive produced by Daly, Jeffrey Blitz ("The Office"), Charlie Siskel ("Tosh.0"), Dave Kneebone ("Nathan For You"), Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. Co-Executive Producers are Andy Blitz and Leo Allen. The series is directed by Jeffrey Blitz. Jim Sharp and Gary Mann are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
