Amazon’s Prime Video service is having its first ever Australian Amazon Original series, which will be called “LOL: Last One Laughing.”

The new six-part comedy-variety series will be hosted by acclaimed Australian actress, writer and producer Rebel Wilson, who will also be the executive producer of the show. Endemol Shine Australia is the show’s producer.

Rebel is most known for movies like Pitch Perfect, The Hustle and Isn’t It Romantic.

In LOL: Last One Laughing, Rebel will be joined by a star-studded cast of ten Australian comedic actors and stand-ups who will compete to make each other laugh first. The last comedian left standing will win the grand prize of AUD$100,000.

Its format is similar to that of another Amazon Original series in Japan, "Hitoshi Matsumoto Presents Documental,” which is produced by and stars Japanese comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto.

Amazon Prime Video also has a similar show in Mexico with comedian Eugenio Derbez with the same title.

The Amazon Original series will premiere exclusively on Prime Video and will be available across more than 200 countries and territories in 2020.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the Prime Video family of creators and talent… I’ve already had the chance to work with Alexa - she’s great - and on Audible, so working with Prime Video seemed like an obvious choice. I can’t wait to see what these talented Australian comedians come up with and how far they’ll go to take home the prize,” Rebel was quoted as saying.

Production is set to commence this spring in Sydney. Amazon Prime Video will soon announce the list of other Australian comedians who will participate in the comedy show.
