Netflix signs Daily Show’s Michelle Wolf for talk show

Daily Show’s Michelle Wolf has landed her own weekly Netflix half-hour talk show, set to premiere later this year.

The untitled show will look to take a break from the seriousness of late night comedy. Wolf will take aim at all parties, stating that there will be no preaching or political agenda, “unless it’s funny”.

After spending four years working on shows such as The Daily Show and Late Night with Seth Meyers, Wolf will now host and executive produce through her Cats in Pants banner.

Daniel Bodansky will executive produce alongside Wolf. Dan Powell (Inside Amy Schumer) and Christine Nangle (The President’s Show) will serve as co-show runners and executive producers.

Wolf said: “You can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV.”

Bela Bajaria, vice president of content at Netflix, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Michelle, a gifted writer and performer with a singular voice.”
