Three members of The Chaser team have revealed that they are filming a new TV series.

Julian Morrow, Andrew Hansen and Craig Reucassel from the comedy troupe - who have often caused outrage with their stunts on The ABC over the past ten years - are now working on a Seven Network comedy panel show called The Unbelievable Truth.

Reucassel is believed to be hosting the series, while Hansen and Morrow will head panels of guest comedians including Shane Jacobson, Kitty Flanagan and Tom Gleeson.

Reucassel told the Herald Sun that the new show is unlikely to cause the same stir that The Chaser did, saying: "I don't think this show will get us on the front page of the newspaper but, then again, we've got there before without even trying - so you never know."

He also told The Age that moving to commercial television is a risk, but one that they're willing to take.

"If, three weeks in, it gets pulled because it's not getting ratings," he said, "that's when you experience the commerciality of it."

Reucassel also revealed that The Chaser team will still "be doing more at The ABC" throughout 2012 than ever before.

The Unbelievable Truth will air on Seven later this year.
