Standup comedian Bert Kreischer is set to star in and executive produce “Cabin,” a new Netflix improv comedy series based on Martin Petit’s “Les Pecheurs,” TheWrap has learned exclusively.
Additionally, Kreischer has set his second comedy special for the streaming service, “Bert Kreischer: Hey Big Boy.” The standup event, which is directed by Jeff Tomsic and produced by JAX, will launch March 17.
Here is the logline for “Cabin,” per Netflix:
After years on the grind, Bert Kreischer sets out on a purifying retreat to a remote cabin. But Bert only has one speed. Joined by his celebrity friends, Bert attempts bizarre therapy techniques, intense physical challenges, and ridiculously improvised encounters with nature. Bert attempts to cleanse his “mind, body and soul” at breakneck pace with often disastrous results.
The “celebrity friends” joining Kreischer for the improv series include Anthony Anderson, Bobby Lee, Caitlyn Jenner, Chris D’elia, Fortune Feimster, Joel McHale, Kaley Cuoco, Leah Remini, Nikki Glaser, Tom Segura, Whitney Cummings and “many” more guest stars.
Kreischer serves as executive producer on “Cabin” alongside Tomsic, who is also directing, and Matthew Vaughan for Rotten Science LCC, Todd Garner for Broken Road, Judi Marmel and Reg Tigerman for Levity Live, and Mike Gibbons.
The series hails from Rotten Science LLC.
Kreischer’s first Netflix stand-up special, “Secret Time,” launched in August 2018. On Jan. 30, Bert kicks off his new “Berty Boy” comedy tour.
