truTV Orders Pilot With Adam Conover

truTV said it ordered a pilot for Adam Ruins Everything (working title), a half-hour investigative comedy starring comedian Adam Conover, from Los Angeles-based production company Big Breakfast.

In the show, Conover explores topics and ideas many people take for granted and dispels widespread misconceptions through a combination of comedy, history, and science, the Turner Broadcasting-owned network said. "Adam is like that friend who knows a little bit too much about everything and is going to tell you about it whether you like it or not. By employing sharp humor, mock experiments and on-the-spot comedy reporting, Adam Ruins Everything isn't just fun to watch, but addictively informative -- it's everything you didn't want to need to know."

The show was born out of a popular CollegeHumor Original series which has generated more than 20 million views since premiering online with the sketch "Why Engagement Rings Are a Scam," in February 2014. Adam Ruins Everything is produced by Big Breakfast, which is led by Sam Reich.
