The new series, Party Over Here, will run on Saturday nights and stars Girl Code’s Nicole Byer, SNL writer Alison Rich, and Jessica McKenna of Fox’s improv comedy show Riot. It’s the first show in the Lonely Island’s multi-year deal with Fox, which will allow the trio—Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer—to develop comedy programming for Fox and streaming platforms like Hulu.
The Lonely Island, which rose to fame on YouTube before becoming part of SNL’s viral and digital arsenal, said in a statement: “When we first conceived this idea, we thought of it as a spinoff of Empire. We failed miserably… now it’s much more of a sketch comedy show.”
It will be interesting to see how the series, which will be produced by the Lonely Island and The League’s Paul Scheer, fares against SNL. Party Over Here debuts March 12.
