Sarah Silverman Lands New Hulu Talk Series ‘I Love You, America’
America could probably use a hug week after week, and Sarah Silverman might be just the person to do it. The revered comedian has partnered with Funny or Die to deliver a new weekly talk series for Hulu, if only to constantly reassure audiences that I Love You, America.
Picked up straight-to-series, the tentatively-titled I Love You, America will consist of ten weekly half-hours “to discuss the current political/emotional landscape of the country.” Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Amy Zvi executive produce alongside Silverman, while the full synopsis reads:
From inciting treason to telling poop jokes, Sarah Silverman has created her fair share of online chatter, but with this show she’s 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. She is teaming up with producers Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, and Funny Or Die, in creating a show setting out to expose the fact that we are all the same. Oh, and it will be funny too.
Hulu didn’t specify a premiere date, though you can catch Silverman with her upcoming Netflix special, and stay tuned.
