Plans were unveiled today for a new sketch series, which will shoot in New York this fall and is scheduled to debut in 2020. Netflix announced plans for six half-hour episodes of “The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show.”
“From the mind of Iliza Shlesinger comes a secret world filled with absurd characters, insight into the female experience, and irreverent yet poignant social commentary,” Netflix says in the logline for the show.
Shlesinger will executive produce along with Kim Gamble, Kara Baker, David Martin, Richard Allen-Turner and Jon Thoday. The series is produced by Avalon Television and directed by Laura Murphy (“Girl Code”; “Adam Ruins Everything”).
Netflix says Shlesinger is “one of today’s leading comedians selling out theaters around the world to a fan base who show their loyalty by creating their own Iliza-inspired swag to wear to her shows. In 2019, she will launch her fifth stand-up special for Netflix — her past specials on Netflix are ‘Elder Millennial,’ ‘Confirmed Kills,’ ‘Freezing Hot’ and ‘War Paint.’ This past summer she released ‘Over & Over,’ a documentary which gave fans a behind the scenes look into the making of ‘Elder Millennial.'”
