Fact Checkers Unit to the rescue! What’s true and what’s isn’t true when it comes to product claims and celeb news? What are the facts? The Fact Checkers Unit is an award winning online web series directed and co-written by Daniel Beers that features a comedic duo who check the most absurd celebrity and magazine facts.
The short film, The Fact Checkers Unit, was originally screened at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival Competition and soon after became a huge success when Dan Beers landed a deal with NBC and Samsung to continue the film as an online web series. With over 4.5 milion views online, Season 1 was a huge success featuring stars like Bill Murray, Jon Heder, Pauley Perrette, Alex Trebek, Dave Navarroa and Karolina Kurkova. Now produced by MTV and Samsung, the show is currently in its second season. Season 2 features stars like Moby, TPain, Run DMC, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and TJ Miller.
In the latest episode titled, [FCU2- GALAXY Note] Ep.6 James Franco is preggers, which aired Monday, May 25th, the Fact Checkers discover a pregnant picture of James Franco. Of course the Fact Checkers are going to get to the bottom of this ridiculously absurd fact and they have the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note to help them. But what they discover is something even more absurd. If you haven’t had a chance to check out FCU, this is definitely one to see. The Fact Checkers will let nothing stop them in the hunt for the truth.
This show is hilarious and isn’t very long, so it’s great for a quick laugh during your downtime this summer. Enjoy online. It is no longer available here.
