Congratulations to Michelle Wolf!
As reported first by The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix is giving Wolf her own weekly late-night talk show, to debut later this year.
Netflix canned Chelsea, but is getting back into topical talk this coming weekend with the launch of The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale. The streaming giant also has a monthly talk show hosted by David Letterman.
Wolf’s show will be run by Dan Powell (Inside Amy Schumer) and Christine Nangle (The President’s Show). Wolf’s manager, Daniel Bodansky, will also EP. Wolf most recently debuted her first stand-up special on HBO, and was working as a correspondent for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Before that, she wrote and performed for Late Night with Seth Meyers.
“You can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV,” Wolf said in the official statement from Netflix.
Added Netflix’s VP of Content, Bela Bajaria: “We’re thrilled to be working with Michelle, a gifted writer and performer with a singular voice.”
