ABC Commercial Format 'Review' Has Third Season Premiere on Comedy Central® USA


The US adaptation of ABC Commercial’s hit format Review will have its series three premiere on Comedy Central® USA on Thursday 16 March. The acclaimed series was adapted from the ABC Commercial program Review with Myles Barlow.

Comedy Central® USA first premiered Review in March 2014 with the series achieving a cult following and critical acclaim for season two as The New York Times hailed it a “drolly hilarious” show that “breaks all moulds”, and The New Yorker describing it as “surprisingly profound…poking fun at a specific brand of professional privilege”.

‘Some shows never even get to series stage in the US and here we are at season three, highlighting the quality of this standout format. The format is going from strength to strength too, with other exceptional local adaptations also in development in other key markets,’ said Katherine McMillan, Format Sales Manager for ABC Commercial.

The series stars Andy Daly as critic Forrest MacNeil, who doesn’t review boring things like films, food or art, Forrest reviews the most intense experiences of life itself — by living them. From the dangers of being buried alive to the thrills of joining the mile high club, Forrest fully commits to showing what life feels like, sometimes at the expense of his safety, his family and humanity in general.

Review is executive produced by Daly, Jeffrey Blitz (Table 19, Trial and Error), Andy Blitz (Conan, Master of None) and Charlie Siskel (Tosh.0).
