Seth Meyers knows a thing or two about true crime parodies. The Late Night host, along with comedy cohorts Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, co-produced Documentary Now! which painstakingly recreates the look and feel of some of our most memorable real-life dramas. Following the show’s fantastic take on Errol Morris’ groundbreaking true crime documentary The Thin Blue Line, Meyers took aim this week at another suspicious police force. Returning from a holiday break, the host opened his show with a parody of Netflix’s buzzy series Making a Murderer with his own version, “Making a Talk Show Host.”
Take a gander at the clip below. (Don’t worry– it’s nowhere near as soul-crushingly depressing as its source material.) And for more Documentary Now!, be sure to check out exclusive video that offers an in-depth look at the craft behind the show, music from the show, full episodes and more.
