"Funny or Die Presents America's Next Weatherman" is a late-night reality competition series on TBS that features 12 contestants vying for a job as America's next great weathercaster. Matt Oberg ("The Comedians") hosts the competition, which will be judged by longtime weather personalities Johnny Mountain (KABC, KCBS) and Jillian Barberie ("Good Day LA").

The series marries the comedic and subversive voice of Funny or Die with the production value and compelling storytelling of a show from Mark Burnett. Each classic reality show element — from the physical challenges to the dramatic vote-offs — will be tweaked through the Funny or Die prism to create an original viewing experience. However, the stakes are 100% real as the contestants will be vying for $100,000 and an appearance on TBS's sister network CNN forecasting the national weather for the morning show New Day.

The contestants include Jennifer "Jazzy T" Williams, Frank Margini, Jeff Forgeron, Miller Robson, Jenn Barlow, Mackenzie Bart, Ron Hilliard, Michelle Rotella, Aubrey Evans, Christina Faraone, David Collins and Drew Logan.

"Funny or Die Presents America's Next Weatherman" is produced by Funny or Die, Mark Burnett and United Artists Media Group (UAMG). The series is based on a concept and format by the creative teams at Funny or Die and UAMG, including Seth Morris ("Kroll Show"), who will serve as a producer on the show. Funny or Die's Mike Farah and Joe Farrell serve as executive producers, along with Mark Burnett and Dean Houser. UAMG has retained all international rights, which will be distributed by MGM.
