Wayne Brady, who has stayed busy since Whose Line is it Anyway? as the host of at least one billion different television shows is returning to improv with Trust Us With Your Life, which premieres tomorrow at 9 pm ET on ABC. And several of his Whose Line? friends are joining in. Dan Patterson, the man behind both the British and American incarnations of Whose Line? is serving as the producer, and the legendary Fred Willard will be serving as host.

The new show features Wayne and Colin Mochrie, as well as a handful of guest improvisers reenacting the lives of celebrities. Rather than play off studio audience suggestions, the show brings in a celebrity guest star to share tidbits about their lives, and from there it’s in the performers’ hands. The improv comics reenact whatever stories their guest have to offer in free-form improv segments, as well as in game formats. Celebrity guest stars for the first season include David Hasselhoff, Florence Henderson, Ricky Gervais, Serena Williams, Jerry Springer, Jack and Kelly Osbourne, Jane Seymour and Mark Cuban. Guest performers include Brad Sherwood, Greg Proops, Nicole Parker, Craig Cackowski, Josie Lawrence and David Armand.

    I just watched my first episode of Trust us With Your Life at Dish Online and I must say it wasn’t bad. The part where Ozzie enters the Kitchen is priceless. It reminded me a little of Who’s Line is it Anyway but I loved that show also. I go to college and work full time at Dish but I think I may have found another reason not to do homework.

    So, it’s ASSSSCAT?

      Well no, because that would be giving credit where it’s due. This is a wholly original concept.

      Or, put another way, it’s completely ASSSSCAT! Although I have to admit I’m not expert enough to know if ASSSSCAT! is simply a well-known production of a common improv game, so maybe they’re both from a mutual source? Not letting them off the hook, just really don’t know.

      Yes, but not as a UCB production.
