Sarah Silverman to Host Weekly Talk Show for Hulu
“I Love You, America” will be produced by Funny Or DieMarch 27, 2017
Sarah Silverman and Hulu are joining forces for the streaming platform’s first venture into the talk/variety show arena. It was reported Monday that the friend of the Stern Show will be hosting a weekly, topical half-hour show exclusively on Hulu, tentatively titled “I Love You, America.”
Given a straight-to-series 10-episode order, the show will reportedly deal with “the current political and emotional landscape of the country.” It will be produced by Funny Or Die, Will Ferrell, and Adam McKay, who already have experience in the variety/talk show realm with “@midnight” on Comedy Central.
According to the show’s logline, Sarah is “looking to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously. While it’s great to connect with like-minded people, Silverman feels it’s crucial, now more than ever, to connect with un-like-minded people.”
The show’s release date has yet to be announced, but in the meantime, Sarah’s upcoming Netflix stand-up special will drop on May 30.
