Samantha Bee is done with the ‘sausages’ of late-night TV
She has plenty of choice, but she’s having none of it.
Samantha Bee is giving up the same old late-night.
The former Daily Show correspondent left earlier this month to host her own “issues-oriented” show on TBS (along with producing her husband Jason Jones’s TBS comedy), and the first trailer for the untitled project gives us an idea of what we’ll be getting.
In the trailer, she notes that she’s had it with sausages—or rather, the overabundance of men in late-night TV. Sure, she has plenty of choices, but she’d rather go with something else. We’re already charmed.
In an interview with Vulture, Bee elaborates a little more on the concept of her show, which is still in development.
“I think that my work on The Daily Show mostly speaks to the things that I feel passionately about, and TBS is giving me a platform to continue to do the types of things that I like to do,” she said. “To follow the stories that mean something to me, I’m super excited about it because that’s what I like to do. I can’t really say what form it’s going to take right now. It’s too embryonic.”
