Showtime sets May date for Ziwe Variety Series

ZIWE, the new variety series starring and executive produced by Ziwe Fumudoh, premieres Sunday, May 9, 2021, at 11 p.m. Eastern/Pacific.

Her initial six-episode run will include interviews, musical numbers, guest stars, sketches and more – including unscripted and unpredictable interactions with everyday people.

Ziwe, a former writer for Showtime’s Desus & Mero and Our Cartoon President, broke out in a big way in 2020 with her Instagram Live grilling of problematic people, and shined in the year-end comedy special, Yearly Departed, on Amazon Prime Video.

ZIWE is produced by A24. In addition to Ziwe, Jamund Washington and Hunter Speese serve as executive producers.
