Episodes will be 30 minutes long, with Silverman aiming to “connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously.” In other words: Even though she’s famously liberal herself, the comedian isn’t interested in simply talking to people who share her opinions. She wants to engage people who aren’t like-minded and have a discussion. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are signed on to executive produce.
With Chelsea Handler’s Netflix series also migrating to a weekly format, and Sam Bee‘s TBS series rolling out viral clips regularly, we may be entering a golden age of female comedians with platforms to shape the national discourse.
This news comes days after a Facebook video Silverman made about credit unions got a staggering 10 million views in nine days:

Silverman also has a Netflix special due out in May.
