TBS has ordered a pilot for a new reality series entitled Undercover Karaoke, which comes from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Funny Or Die website. The series will be based on an exclusive video produced by the comedy hub that featured singer Jewel sneaking into a karaoke bar to belt out a couple of her hit songs while in disguise.
The series will follow other singer/celebrities as they don a variety of different costumes to perform their own classic hits in front of unsuspecting karaoke bar patrons. If picked up, the show will also delve into other aspects of entertainment, allowing its superstar guests to pose as themselves under any variety of circumstances.
Eric Appel, who created the original video, will executive produce the TBS pilot along with Funny Or Die's Mike Farah and Chris Henchy for Gary Sanchez Prods. The pilot episode will be produced internally at Funny Or Die with input from both Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
