Series concept and production info

David Spade`s TV show “Fameless” is a new American unscripted pseudo-reality series. It is produced by Entertainment One and Electus, executive produced by David Spade, Ben Silverman, Tara Long and Kevin Healey and debuted on truTV in the summer of 2015.

The series is partly a prank show, partly a sketch show that parodies the reality series genre. The idea is that an unsuspecting wannabe reality show star contends in a challenge where everyone else is in on the joke. Every week there is a new setup – it might be a survival series spoof or a home makeover parody, and a team of improvising actors makes it seem like a true reality show. David Spade mentioned in an interview that only one of the contestants was offended by the scheme when he finally found out what his role actually was in the series.

Reception and renewal prospects

The season premiere of Fameless took place on July 29, 2015, and in October 10 additional episodes were ordered by truTV, bringing the total episode count to 18. The second part of the freshman season is coming back on air on January 18, 2016 after a prolonged winter break. The series takes a hard look at what people are ready to go through in order to get their desired 15 minutes of fame, and does it with a laugh. Critics and viewers are split on whether the series is way too mean or just hilarious, but the reviews have generally been positive. There has not been any information from the network regarding a possible renewal or a cancelation of the series.
