JON GLASER (Trainwreck, Parks and Recreation, Girls) announces the premiere date for his new TV series JON GLASER LOVES GEAR on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 26 at 10pm ET/PT with back-to-back episodes on truTV. The hybrid comedy series’ 10-episode first season, created by and starring Jon Glaser, will feature John Hodgman (The Daily Show), Steve Cirbus (Delocated), Miriam Tolan and Eva Solveig in recurring roles. Guest appearances include Janeane Garofalo (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp); John Early (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising); Jo Firestone (The Jim Gaffigan Show); mixed martial artist Renzo Gracie; bass fishing champ Woo Daves; Former NHL All-Star and Emmy Award winning broadcaster Ron Duguay; Peter Grosz (Veep); and Robert Kelly (Louie). They all play alongside the series’ star Jon as he sets out to make a docu-series about his greatest passion: gear. Ironically, it’s this very obsession that continually threatens to derail the show, sending each episode spiraling off on deeply personal tangents.
Jon Glaser’s additional TV credits include Delocated! and Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter, both of which he also created, co-wrote, co-executive produced and starred in; Emmy nominated shows including Parks and Recreation, Girls, Inside Amy Schumer, Louie and Curb Your Enthusiasm, and MTV’s cult comedy show Wonder Showzen. His book “My Dead Dad Was In ZZ Top” was published by Harper Collins.
Jon Glaser Loves Gear is produced by PFFR with Vernon Chatman, John Lee, and Alyson Levy executive producing alongside Glaser, Dave Becky, Richard Korson, and David Miner. A special sneak peek of the series’ first episode will air Tuesday, October 25 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT immediately following The Adam Ruins Everything Election Special on truTV.
