Yesterday, Today & the Day Before (6×60’), produced by Rumpus Media, sees a female-led panel of comedians offer a fresh take on all that has happened in the world, poring over news, pop culture and funny anecdotes. Rumpus Media founder Emily Hudd exec produces.

From NBCUniversal International Studios label Monkey comes The Complaints Department, a 6×60’ panel show in which two teams of comics are presented with the finest complaints, whines and protests from the public in the UK and beyond.

Also from Monkey, Fact Off (working title) is a 6×60’ quizshow in which four comedians, armed with the most impressive facts and fascinating trivia they know, try to outsmart one another.

Monkey founder Will Macdonald exec produces The Complaints Department and Fact Off with Toby Brack.

Sebastian Cardwell, deputy director of programmes at ViacomCBS Networks UK, said: “These three new rich and varied formats with top-tier comedic talent at the heart are guaranteed to keep our audiences laughing.”
