I’m coming soon to a TV near you

At MegaCon, I announced that I’ve been developing a television show that I host, write, and produce. Here’s a little bit more about that show.

I can’t say which network it will be on, but the network picked us up for 12 episodes, and we’ll start airing in May. If everything goes according to plan, and they make a full order, I’ll be on your television almost every week for the rest of the year. This show is really funny, and I can’t wait to get permission from the network to talk about it in more detail. I heard today, though, that the network plans to make a formal announcement next week sometime.

Wednesday, I met with my entire staff of writers and producers, and I was blown away by the talent and brilliance of the team I’m going to be working with for the next three months (and hopefully the next few years). I wish I could talk about this in more detail, but until I get the go-ahead from the network, know this: For at least 12 weeks this summer, I’ll be coming into your home to share some funny and awesome stuff with you, and I’m really super excited for you to share the experience with me.

  1. Wow! This is so great! I really hope this is not an early April’s fools joke. :-) I’m so happy for you!

    1. Actually, he amended the post to state that he can’t mention which network because those people were asking. It wasn’t there before.

  2. that is so amazing!!!! i cant wait to get my weekly dose of wheaton. Would love to see Felicia Day make an appearance too, but i guess that depends on what type of show it will be. Cant wait for the formal announcement!!!!

  3. Yay! This is really, really fantastic news. I’m looking forward to watching this show and hearing more details whenever you can update us. Congrats to you, Wil!

  4. I think “Tabletop” is ready for cable TV! (Just a random wild guess – I know that’s probably not it.)

  5. Host, hmm? Sounds like Jimmy Fallon’s tenure is going to be even shorter than Conan’s!

  6. Thanks for the post edit, Wil. Can’t wait to learn more. “It’s because of you that I got back into table top gaming and blah, blah, blah, you know the drill.”

    But that doesn’t make my “THANK YOU” any less sincere.

    Best of luck with your new venture!


  7. That’s awesome! Congrats! I’m looking forward to hearing more – I could imagine something about tabletop, hockey, science, or burritos. Can’t wait to figure out which prediction in correct.

    Total side note – how are you not involved with some sort of NHL commentary? Or are you and I’ve missed it?

  8. For those of us _not_ in the US, any idea on whether it will be either legally streamable/downloadable, or distributed internationally? If not, there’s always NNTP, but I prefer legal routes when they are available.

  9. Congrats Wil! We’ll definitely be watching. Also, SO good to finally meet you at MegaCon, hope you’ll be back next year! P.S. Your wife is awesome :-)

  10. Wil – I hope you and the network will consider publishing to Hulu the day after each broadcast. As a cord-cutter, I would hate to miss out on whatever it is you have in the pipeline.

  11. I’m excited! You were my first TV crush way back when…can’t wait to see what you’ve cooked up!

  12. I’m really proud of you, Wil, as are I’m sure many many soapbox monkeys. This is an achievement that any HMIC could be proud of. *Hugs you, and then does the happy dance*
    Two opposable thumbs up,
