The News Quiz gets a US makeover with an all-American panel.

With the US election this year, turmoil in the Middle East, financial insecurity all around - not to mention a recent visit from the British Prime Minister - a team of US comedians dissect the headlines as the News Quiz format crosses the Atlantic.

The Daily Show's Lewis Black hosts. The panel are: top comic commentator (and TIME magazine's top Twitterer) Andy Borowitz; comic headliner and actor Todd Barry; ex-journalist-turned top stand-up Kathleen Madigan; and topical comedian Ted Alexandro.

Producer: Sam Bryant.
