The series sees a team of celebrities try and ascertain truth from fiction with questions and stories.
“As a person of Indian descent, I couldn't be happier to finally steal something from the British,” said Mandvi. “As a performer I couldn't be happier to partner with Robert and Michelle King, Truly Original and the whole creative team to every week host a half hour of pure silliness and joy.”” />
