Here's the first trailer for Funny or Die's reality competition 'America's Next Weatherman'

Posted on


Why aspire to be our county’s next top model or best dance crew when you can totally be a weatherman? 

Funny or Die has teamed up with Survivor overlord Mark Burnett for a TBS reality competition series titled, yes, Funny or Die Presents America’s Next Weatherman, in which a dozen wanna-be meteorologists vie to win $100,000 and a shot at forecasting the weather on CNN’s New Day. (Apparently it’s going to take a lot more than just winning a reality show to make it all the way to The Weather Channel.)

Hosted by The Comedians‘ Matt Oberg, ​the eight-episode show will feature the judging talents of real-life mercury masters Johnny Mountain and Jillian Barberie as well as a flurry of absurd challenges like the “Snownado.” Put on a poncho and brave the elements in this video to get an exclusive first look at America’s Next Weatherman, which premieres Aug. 8 at 11 p.m.
