Comedian Michelle Wolf signs Netflix talk show
Michelle Wolf has officially signed with Netflix to star in her own talk show. She has written and contributed on late night favorites including Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Daily Show and after working in the industry for four years, she now has a chance to showcase her talents in a series of her own. Netflix has revealed that the yet-to-be-named series will be taking a break from the seriousness of late night comedy. Instead of making the news fun, she’ll make fun of everything and everybody. There will be no preaching or political agenda… unless it’s funny.
Wolf has stated that viewers “can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV” which sounds like spectacular news for fans of talk shows that aim toward an edgier, adult audience. The Vice President of Content for Netflix, Bela Bajaria, expressed the company’s excitement with the new project: “We’re thrilled to be working with Michelle, a gifted writer and performer with a singular voice.”
Wolf is set to executive produce through her Cats in Pants banner. Daniel Bodansky will also executive produce. Dan Powell (Inside Amy Schumer) and Christine Nangle (The President’s Show, The Mick) will serve as co-show runners and executive producers.
The series is set to premiere later this year.
