If you’ve ever watched “House Hunters,” you’ve likely screamed at the television a time (or two) because of the ridiculous asks from couples (like that pair who wanted to move to Costa Rica because they wanted a sloth neighbor). Now, HGTV is providing a different kind of comic relief in their new series, “House Hunters: Comedians on Couches.”

The four-night special, which will air June 2-5, comes with an impressive star-studded cast. The video conference-styled series will be led by Dan Levy and Natasha Leggero, who will bring on their comedian friends—Whitney Cummings, Eliot Glazer, John Mulaney, Chris Redd, and J.B. Smoove—to watch classic “House Hunters” episodes and add some colorful commentary.

President of HGTV Jane Latman expressed how “House Hunters” was the perfect show to be the focus of the new series on because of the couples’ controversial decisions that have always sparked emotions and conversations.

“‘House Hunters’ is a pop culture phenomenon that inspires strong reactions from viewers who like to play along with its familiar house selection process,” Latman said on HGTV’s blog. “While we may not agree with the house each family chooses or the reasons they select it, we can agree that it’s a good time to lean on talented people who can find the humor in everything and make us laugh out loud—even when it comes to the challenges and triumphs of house hunting.”

And it’s not just for laughs. Discovery Inc. (who owns HGTV) has partnered with No Kid Hungry for the Turn Up: Fight Hunger campaign that is dedicated to ending childhood hunger, and it will be promoted throughout the series for any viewers who are able and willing to donate.

The “House Hunters: Comedians on Couches” series will air on HGTV starting Tuesday, June 2 at 10 and 10:30 p.m. EDT, running a new episode every night through Friday, June 5.
