Hosted by Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi, the web series takes a look at a humorous glance at all things politics and pop culture.
So far, the Funny or Die series has posted 80 episodes, ranging in topic from gay rights to Benedict Cumberbatch to pot cookies. Gibson and Safi will executive produce the TV Land pilot along with Charlie Siskel and members of the Funny or Die production staff.
