Just in time for launch, Fusion announced it has added nightly sports comedy program “Sports Talkers,” to air weeknights at 9:00 pm ET.
The show is hosted in a tricked-out suburban basement by three members of the comedy troupe the Harvard Sailing Team – Rebecca Delgado Smith, Adam Lustick, and Billy Scafuri.
“Sports Talkers” is described as a show that “will weave together elements of talk radio, late night comedy, and improv performance into a moth-balled quilt that begins with sports and ends with ‘Talkers.'”
Rebecca Delgado Smith has hosted her very own sports blog (Rebecca Brings You Sports!). In addition to the Harvard Sailing Team, she performs sketch comedy with The New York Smiths.
Adam Lustick has worked on a short-form series called “Pretty Good Sports News,” which has been exhibited weekly onESPNNewYork.com.
Billy Scafuri has written for, and appeared on, various TV shows and commercials. His credits range from ESPN and Sports Illustrated to PBS and The G4 Network.
Geoff Haggerty will executive produce “Sports Talkers.” Geoff’s credits include writing for “Onion SportsDome” on Comedy Central. More recently, Geoff comes from VH1 where he wrote and performed on “Big Morning Buzz Live with Carrie Keagan” and “The Gossip Table.”
