Ed Helms to Star in Comedy Central Special ‘The Fake News with Ted Nelms’

ed-helmsDaily Show alum Ed Helms is returning to Comedy Central for a new special. According to Deadline, the network has added a special produced by and starring Helms called The Fake News with Ted Nelms, which will feature “absurd, made-up news that closely resembles real news, delivered by an absurd, made-up guy who closely resembles Ed Helms” and “will look exactly like CNN or FOX News, but with the sound on, it will live in the great deadpan comedy tradition of Peter Sellers, Monty Python, and Leslie Nielsen.” Former Daily Show producer Stu Miller is also credited as an executive producer on the special, which doesn’t yet have a premiere date.
