E! orders The Comment Section hosted by Michael Kosta

The comments people leave all over the Internet are often done anonymously, but comedian Michael Kosta will be front and center in skewering them later this summer in The Comment Section, a new weekly series ordered by E! today.

Here’s the official series description provided by E!

“The Comment Section”
This new half-hour comedy series explores the biggest stories of the week and all of the outrageous and hilarious comments made about them on social media. Hosted by comedian Michael Kosta and executive produced by “The Soup”‘s Joel McHale and K.P. Anderson, “The Comment Section” will boldly dive into the most dangerous corners of the internet, take out the haters, anoint the heroes and generate an all new brand of laughs from the biggest pop culture stories of the week. Produced by Wilshire Studios Free Period and Pygmy Wolf Productions, the series premieres late summer 2015. Executive producers are Joel McHale, KP Anderson, Jason Burns and Greg Heller.

Kosta previously worked with McHale and Anderson as a correspondent on E!’s The Soup Investigates in 2013.

“What’s funny is everybody…immediately thinks it’s all about people who hate on the Internet, which it is. But people comment about other things, too. But that’s where our minds go,” Kosta told The Comic’s Comic back in January.

His mind already was wondering who’s leaving Internet comments in the first place.

“Who are these people? I don’t know. I haven’t Yelped. You’re someone who writes reviews. I don’t. Who are these people?” he told me. “They have an avatar of like a dinosaur.”
