It was reported three days ago that Tom Papa had inked a deal with TBS to shoot a show pilot titled Naked Truth. The former host of NBC’s The Marriage Ref will facilitate conversations between himself and three other comedians, Deadline reported. But we can exclusively reveal that one of those comedians will be fan favorite, and comic’s comic Bill Burr! We’ll surely know the other two soon, but something tells us Jerry Seinfeld might be dropping in. Seinfeld executive produced The Marriage Ref and is Papa’s longtime friend and collaborator.

Papa is executive producing Naked Truth with Robert Morton, known mostly for his production work at Late Show with David Letterman between 1993 and 2000. Morton has also executive produced Lopez Tonight (formerly on TBS), as well as Mind of Mencia, David Alan Grier’s Chocolate News and the Wayne Brady Show, among many others.

Earlier this year, Papa premiered a new stand-up special Live in New York City on Comedy Central, as well as an unedited digital album version. He also hosts Come to Papa, a weekly interview show on the Raw Dog channel on SiriusXM.
