Sarah Silverman Sets HBO Stand-Up Special and Series Pilot

-

Two-time Emmy-winning comedian, actress, writer and producer Sarah Silverman is returning to HBO for a new stand-up comedy special and late-night series pilot order, it was announced today by Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president, HBO Programming.

Silverman describes her proposed late-night series as “weighing in on the mishigas of the week and taking live video calls.”

“I’m as passionate talking about my face-washing routine as I am talking about why billionaires cost us money,” says Silverman. “Nothing’s off the table and nothing’s too high or low brow for me. I mean – look at my face – I’m literally all brow.”

“Sarah is truly a comedic force of nature and we’re so happy to have her back on HBO,” said Rosenstein.

Most recently, Sarah Silverman served as creator, executive producer and host of the Emmy-nominated Hulu talk series I Love You, America and she is currently in production on the Universal comedy Marry Me. She is also adapting her best-selling memoir, The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee, into a musical that will debut in 2020. Her latest standup-comedy special, A Speck of Dust, garnered two Emmy nominations and a Grammy nomination. Her other television and film work includes Masters of Sex, Bob’s Burgers, Battle of the Sexes, I Smile Back and the Wreck-It Ralph movies.

In 2014, Silverman won an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for the 2013 HBO comedy special Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, which was also nominated for Outstanding Variety Special that year. The special also earned a Grammy nomination for best comedy album.

Previously, Silverman appeared in the HBO comedies Mr. Show with Bob and David and The Larry Sanders Show.

Sarah Silverman, Judd Apatow and Amy Zvi serve as executive producers on the pilot for the series.
