Shue and Schwartzman will play possible guests for the titular nightly cable news show. Patrick Stewart will play Walter Blunt, the host of the show-within-the-show.
The show is from the MRC production company and executive produced by Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Ames, Stephanie Davis and Tristram Shapeero. It has been greenlit for a two-season, 20-episode commitment.
"Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air," a synopsis said.
