TV show description:
Airing on the FOX television network, What Just Happened??! with Fred Savage was created by Savage, Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein. It is a fandom-filled aftershow that’s devoted to a fictional television drama series called The Flare.
The Flare TV show is based on fictional author TJ Whitford’s sci-fi book series, The Moon is the Sun at Night. The book revolves around a solar event and its effects on Earth — specifically, the small, blue-collar town of Milford, IL. As the story progresses, it becomes a post-apocalyptic battle for human survival. Jon Cassar directs the (fictional) drama series.
The book has supposedly been a favorite of Savage’s (playing a fictional version of himself) since childhood. A hybrid comedy and talk show, the parody series features multiple segments, including sit-down celebrity interviews, set visits to The Flare, interviews with The Flare cast and fans, and more.
Savage is aided by a co-host (Taylor Tomlinson) and the aftershow’s music is provided by Best Coast (Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno), the in-house band. Carrie Havel serves as the fictional director on the talk show.
This episode has not aired yet.
First aired: TBD
