10 has announced the premiere date for the debut series of the comedy group The Inspired Unemployed.
Titled, The Inspired Unemployed (Impractical) Jokers, the show will be available air on 10, 10 Play and Paramount+ on Wednesday, 9 August.
The show will see Jack, Liam, Dom and Falcon egg each other on to make absolute fools of themselves in a public setting.
With no one else in on the joke, the foursome will compete to embarrass each other in the biggest way possible, with those failing at the task given a humiliating punishment.
All captured by hidden cameras, it’s awkwardness at its absolute best with sidesplittingly hilarious outcomes.
Jack Steele (Falcon) and Matt Ford, the duo behind The Inspired Unemployed are renowned content creators, having amassed 3.8 million followers on social media.
Now, Steele and Ford will host an eight-part Australian original series, produced by Warner Bros. International Television Production Australia.
Earlier this year, Steele and Ford jointly said: “We are so stoked to be working with Paramount ANZ on this TV show, from the first video we ever made our goal was to always have a TV show and for it to actually be happening is a dream come true.
“We’ve always believed that laughter is the best medicine, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to spread joy and positivity to even more people through this platform.”
Daniel Monaghan, SVP Content and Programming, Paramount Australia and New Zealand said: “The Inspired Unemployed have a huge following with a unique knack for making people sit up, take notice and laugh.
“Paramount ANZ is delighted to be their very first ‘TV home’ when Jack and Matt, alongside their mates will have audiences in stitches with this surprising series. We can’t wait for audiences to watch the show later this year.”
Michael Brooks, Managing Director of Warner Bros. International Television Production Australia and Head of Studios Australia and New Zealand said: “Jack and Matt from The Inspired Unemployed are internet sensations with a natural chemistry that can only come from years of working together.
