HBO will team with comedian Sarah Silverman for a new stand-up comedy special and late-night series pilot order, the network announced Monday.
Silverman -- whose 2013 HBO comedy special Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special -- will develop a late night series for the premium channel, which she described as “weighing in on the mishigas of the week and taking live video calls,” according to the network.
“Sarah is truly a comedic force of nature and we’re so happy to have her back on HBO,” said Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president, HBO Programming.
Most recently, Silverman served as creator, executive producer and host of the Emmy-nominated Hulu talk series I Love You, America and she is currently in production on the Universal comedy Marry Me.
Silverman, Judd Apatow and Amy Zvi will serve as executive producers on the pilot for the series. Additional credits for the pilot and the stand-up special will be announced soon, according to HBO.
