Scripted and unscripted television no longer need to live in separate universes. Seeso established itself as the home of the unscripted unreality show with the hit series Bajillion Dollar Propertie$, and now they hope to do it again with Hidden America with Jonah Ray. Seeso and Jonah Ray are bringing you an unscripted series staple– the American Travel Show– without all that messy reality. In the series, you will absolutely see a side of this country that you’ve never seen before, mostly because it’s completely made up.
Comedian Jonah Ray, who you know from…well…comedy (and Meltdown with Kumail and Jonah) will travel to Boston, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Denver, Atlanta, and Austin, where he will meet some of his comedy friends showing you the history of each city, if history were totally fake. Jonah Ray will talk with (not really) locals, explore (not real) local culture, and you won’t have to learn anything at all. Dana Gould, Bobcat Goldthwait, David Koechner, Sean Patton, and Arden Myrin are just a few of the guest locals who show up throughout the series.
The nine episode series will premiere across Seeso platforms June 2, but you can watch the trailer right now.
