Exciting news for smart, funny AND Black tv-watchers, as truTV has announced an pilot presentation order for Amanda Seales (Insecure) new comedic social commentary game show, Smart, Funny and Black! The order was announced among a series of premiere dates and new projects in development during its Television Critics Association Press Tour Panel.

Currently in development at the network, Smart, Funny and Black is based on her monthly live comedy show of the same name held at NerdMelt in Los Angeles. Seales hosts the live improv competition show full of jokes, audience interaction, a popular Black culture. Professional funny folks (comedians, TV personalities, producers, etc.) join Amanda in a battle of wits in the race to be crowned, “Master Blackspert” and donned on the wall of “Illustrious League of Master Blacksperts.” Smart, Funny and Black is produced by Main Event Media and All3Media America, with Seales, Jimmy Foz and Greg Lipstone executive-producing.

I personally attended two of the most recent showcases, so I’m especially thrilled at the news! It’s engaging, fun, and hilarious! It’ll surely have audiences in their seats yelling out answers as if they were at the live showcase.

Congrats to Amanda Seales!
