Full Frontal with Samantha Bee ordered for a full year by TBS
It’s a full year for Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. TBS, a division of Turner, has ordered 26 episodes of its new series less than two months after star and executive producer Samantha Bee entered the late-night fray to widespread buzz and critical raves. TBS’s order brings the total number of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee episodes to 39, which will take the show to the end of 2016.
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee offers a unique, satirical take on weekly news and explores in-depth stories that have been largely overlooked by more traditional media outlets. The show airs Monday nights on TBS at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT), followed by Conan.
“Stay crazy America, I’ll be here all year!” said Samantha Bee in response to her additional episodes order.
“Sam has positioned herself as an essential voice in late night, and it’s pretty clear she’s struck a nerve and filled a void,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS.
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is executive-produced by Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Jo Miller, Miles Kahn and Tony Hernandez.
