Kroll promises sketches with a strong narrative thread and recurring characters to "differentiate" the show from some of its rivals. And while reality TV will be a major target -- everything from "Real Housewives" to HBO's "24/7" -- one of the most inspired parodies takes on Canadian teen soap "Degrassi."

"It's not the most obvious thing to do, but there are 'Degrassi' fans out there. Every joke is about Canada. It's a fun weird premise to take on.
