A new show starring comedian Sarah Silverman has received a straight-to-series order. The show — working title “I Love You, America” — was picked up for 10 episodes by Hulu.
The series is a weekly half-hour topical talk show from Funny or Die. Executive producers are Silverman, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Amy Zvi.
Here’s the logline, according to Hulu:
“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.”
