The new Fox show Riot is the network’s spin on the Improv format that’s worked so well on shows like Whose Line is it Anyway? The big shift for Riot is that the show places the Improv scenes in places never tried before. One of the major draws to the show is when the cast has to perform on a set that tilts like a sinking Titanic. That movement forces the performers to not only think on the fly, but also creates some never before tried situations. Here’s the preview promo from Fox for the show that features the much talked about titling set.
The show is Executive Produced by the great Steve Carrell. Carrell is apart of tonight’s Riot premiere. He’s also enlisted some of his more famous friends to try their luck on the shifting stage. Here’s a preview of Steve Carrell and Andy Buckley from tonight’s episode playing a game that involves them making shapes of letters by using only their bodies.
