Netflix will not stop its path to become a one destination for everything. It's got HBO-style comedies and dramas; first run movies; kid's originals; and now late night. Following the abysmal run of two Chelsea Handler projects, they bought into a new show from Joel McHale that sounds like The Soup except without a green screen.
Now Michelle Wolf will get her own late night project.
Said Vice President of Content for Netflix Bela Bajaria on the news: “We’re thrilled to be working with Michelle, a gifted writer and performer with a singular voice."
Variety reports that Wolf's (The Daily Show, Nice Lady) new show is a half hour and will look at broader events from around the world as opposed to other late night series. Wolf is set to executive produce via her Cats in Pants studio. Daniel Bodansky, Dan Powell and Christine Nangle will executive produce while the latter two will serve as co-showrunners.
