“Jon Glaser Loves Gear”
 Premieres Wednesday, October 26 at 10 PM ET/PT on truTV
with back-to-back episodes
 
          In this new hybrid comedy series, actor and comedian Jon Glaser (Trainwreck, Parks and Recreation, Girls) sets out to make a docu-series about his greatest passion: gear. Ironically, it's this very obsession that continually threatens to derail the show, sending each episode spiraling off on deeply personal tangents. You like gear? You like Jon Glaser? You'll like the show. You don’t like gear? You don’t like Jon Glaser? Maybe you'll still like the show. Either way, Jon Glaser will still love gear.

          The 10-episode first season will feature John Hodgman (The Daily Show), Steve Cirbus (Delocated), Miriam Tolan and Eva Solveig in recurring roles alongside series’ star Jon.  Guest appearances include Janeane Garofalo (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp); Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire); John Early (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising); Jo Firestone (The Jim Gaffigan Show); mixed martial artist Renzo Gracie; bass fishing champ Woo Daves; Former NHL All-Star and Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Ron Duguay; Peter Grosz (Veep); and Robert Kelly (Louie).  


          In the series premiere, “Camping,” Jon Glaser sets out to make a TV show about his greatest passion: gear. Jon and his designated gear expert Steve Cirbus go on a couples camping trip with the help of a GPS watch with altimeter, carbon compound bow…and an Icelandic model cast as a stand in for Jon’s real wife, who refuses to appear on camera. However, when things get weird between the couples, it threatens to derail the show.
