Comedy Central may no longer have the Emmy-winning Key & Peele, but the cable network will have Kasher and Leggero both on display in 2017.
Comedy Central announced a series order today for Problematic with Moshe Kasher, a weekly talk show that will debut in 2017. Kasher’s wife, Natasha Leggero, stars in Another Period, the turn-of-the-century satire renewed for a third season next year.
“I see myself as the Phil Donahue of the Internet Age except not as funny or dialed into millennial culture,” said Kasher. “This show will create a safe space for offensive comedy and more importantly engender conversations that will completely end all acrimony, racism, sexism, trolling and whatever else you find offensive online once and for all. I promise.”
Comedy Central President Kent Alterman added: “We’re gratified to know we will be living in a utopian society by season three.”
Kasher, Serious Business’ Alex Blagg, Jason Nadler and Jon Zimelis (@midnight with Chris Hardwick), as well as Dave Becky and Josh Lieberman of 3 Arts Entertainment will executive produce. Monika Zielinska and Tara Schuster are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
For some current deep conversations hosted by Kasher, check out his podcast, Hound Tall: “The Hound Tall discussion series is a live podcast, hosted by Moshe Kasher, that takes a single topic and figures out the mysteries of the universe. An hour long chat with an expert and a panel of comedians, they learn all there is to know about things. And also laugh at them.”
