WATCH: Cheyenne Jackson Has a Secret in 'Onion News Empire'

By: Brandon Voss

A biting spoof of HBO's The Newsroom — just what the world was missing! 

Part of an Amazon Network pilot competition, Onion News Empire is a satirical scripted comedy — inspired by the satirical fake-news site — that goes behind the scenes of the fictional Onion News Network, where cutthroat, self-involved journalists will do anything to stay at the top of their game.

Alongside Arrested Development's Jeffrey Tambor and Malcolm in the Middle alum Chris Masterson, out performer Cheyenne Jackson stars as Cameron Grey, a handsome, celebrated news reporter who secretly can't read. Is it really fair for someone so hot to be so funny?

Soon to be seen in HBO's Behind the Candelabra, Jackson is currently shooting the indie film Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks.

See the Onion News Network trailer below and watch the pilot for free on Amazon Instant Video.
