Rainn Wilson-produced 'Impress Me' to premiere on Pop TV

Posted on

Impress Me, a new original scripted series that Rainn Wilson’s SoulPancake is producing, will be premiering on Pop TV on March 18, the network announced on Wednesday.

Six episodes of the show originally premiered on the company’s YouTube channel, but Pop will now air those plus an additional seven new episodes in the show’s first season.

The half-hour scripted comedy focuses on celebrity impressionists Ross Marquand and Jim Meskimen, who are working on quitting the impression business to transition to more serious, dramatic actors – which doesn’t go so smoothly.

Impress Me was created by writer/director Ben Shelton and will feature celebrity cameos from Josh Groban, Angela Kinsey, Matt Jones, Erika Christensen, and “Weird Al “ Yankovic.

The show will air on Pop Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET, following Schitt’s Creek.
