Fameless is an American prank show hosted by David Spade that aired on TruTV for two seasons from 2015 to 2017.[1] The original order was for eight episodes,[2] with an additional ten added to fill out the first season, having received better-than-network-average ratings during its 2015 summer run.[3]

Each week, the series features a group of unsuspecting desperate-to-be-famous individuals who believe they've been cast on a reality show.

However, unbeknownst to them, they are really filming a parody with improv actors creating over-the-top scenarios that steadily increase the absurdity and ridiculousness of each situation[1]
