The Chaser and Seven’s The Unbelievable Truth goes into production this week

The Chaser team and Channel Seven will go into production on their new show this week.

The Unbelievable Truth is produced by The Chaser team’s Giant Dwarf productions and adapted from the BBC Radio4 show of the same name,  co-created by The Goodies’ Graeme Garden – who gets a ‘co-creator’ title on this new version.

A panel style show, the program will feature comedians trying to trick each other into believing lies “while smuggling unbelievable but true facts past each other”.

Hosted by The Chaser’s Craig Reucassel, Julian Morrow and Andrew Hansen will be team captains.

In a statement, Morrow Giant Dwarf’s executive producer said: “The most bizarre fact in the entire series is that Channel Seven have agreed to make a show with us involved. But I suppose it is called The Unbelievable Truth.”

Brad Lyons, Seven’s head of production said: “I liked it better when Seven was getting injunctions to stop these guys being on TV”.

Free tickets are available for a Sydney-based studio audience.
