'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' returns to television as part of CW's summer scheduleby jmaloni
Hosted by Aisha Tyler and featuring the return of Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie
The CW is going for laughs this summer by ordering a new take on the hit improvisational comedy series, "Whose Line Is It Anyway?", hosted by comedian Aisha Tyler ("The Talk"), it was announced Friday by Mark Pedowitz, The CW president. Premiere information will be announced at a later time.
The CW's "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" features the return of Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie, who, along with a special guest each episode, must put their comedic skills to the test through a series of spontaneous improv games. Prompted only by random ideas supplied by the studio audience and host Tyler, the four performers must use the little information they have and their wild imaginations to depict different characters and an array of scenes, as well as perform songs. After each round of improvisation, Tyler will dole out points to our four performers and declare a winner at the end of every episode.
"Whose Line Is It Anyway?" is based on the wildly successful U.K. format, which also spawned a previous incarnation in the US that ran for eight seasons on ABC.
