If there ever was a personality deserving of a show named after him like truTV's Bobcat Goldthwait's Misfits & Monsters, it would be the noted comedian/director. From his "screechy" stand-up act and run in the Police Academy films to his directorial work in both television (Maron, Jimmy Kimmel Live) and film (Willow Creek, World's Greatest Dad), Goldthwait has seen the best and worst that the world has to offer – and it's not pretty.
Bobcat Goldthwait's Misfits & Monsters takes those ugly "universal truths," twists them around and put them on display – with each episode of the anthology series based around a specific style and theme. Set to debut on truTV on July 11, the series features guest stars Michael Ian Black, Bridget Everett, Dave Foley, Seth Green, Melissa Joan Hart, Danny Pudi, and David Koechner – and from what we can see from the images and trailer below, it's definitely not like anything you'll find on television.
To see if that's a blessing or a warning, check out the first official trailer for tru TV's Bobcat Goldthwait's Misfits & Monsters:
Bobcat Goldthwait's Misfits & Monsters: An eight-episode scripted anthology series set for July 11, 2018, the series will examine "universal truths in society and pop culture and turns them inside out in completely unique and entertainingly absurd ways. Each episode is a standalone story set to subvert the satire of the world we live in while also exploring awkward, flawed characters and telling socially-relevant stories with imaginative twists." Produced by Left/Right with Goldthwait, Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman, Olivia Wingate and Michele Armour serving as executive producers; the series stars Michael Ian Black, Bridget Everett, Dave Foley, Seth Green, Melissa Joan Hart, David Koechner, Samm Levine, Joel Murray, Dave Pasquesi and Danny Pudi.
