Official Cast List For New Improv Show Announced

A little over two weeks ago, I made an announcement that the new Whose Lineesque improv pilot that had been filmed in Las Vegas last February had been picked up by The Game Show Network, and was set to begin airing episodes in spring of next year. If you missed this post or want to re-read it, here's the link: http://community.livejournal.com/proopalicious/8678.html?mode=reply .

I am writing you all now with a bit of an update! I have found out the official cast list for the show. It includes a vast majority of the U.S. Whose Line old guard, a few folks from Drew Carey Show / Green Screen Show, and a couple of new faces as well:

Drew Carey
Ryan Stiles
Greg Proops
Chip Esten
Jeff B. Davis
Kathy Kinney
Heather Anne Campbell (was in pilot)
Allison Bosma (brand new)
Jonathan Magnum
Colin Mochrie
Brad Sherwood

The show will also occasionally include surprise guest stars.

However, how the cast will work is still unknown. Greg (Proops) is telling me that the details are still yet to be hashed out completely; no one knows who all is filming on what days (or if it's going to be the entire cast). Colin and Brad tour with their two man show, and a few of their tour show dates conflict with the filming schedule (specifically January 15th, 20th, and 22nd). So either they will not be filming those days, or they will have to reschedule those tour dates. We shall have to see!

The show still currently remains nameless, too - though I am speculating that there's a good chance it's just going to be called 'Drew Carey And The Improv Allstars'. But I could easily be wrong in that department.

Hope everyone is getting excited for the new series!
