A FunnyOrDie.com viral video is getting a chance for a television crossover.
The comedy website announced Wednesday that a pilot for “Undercover Karaoke” has been ordered by TBS. Funny Or Die will produce the potential series, and co-founders Will Ferrell and Adam McKay will contribute to it.
The show will be based on a video in which the singer-songwriter Jewel donned a disguise of a prosthetic nose, wig, glasses and butt padding, and sang under an alias at a Los Angeles karaoke joint. She astonished the crowd, only to later reveal her identity.
Created by Eric Appel, the video has been watched more than 3.3 million times.
