Michelle Wolf to host late-night series on Netflix

Netflix seems to have developed a liking for talk shows. After David Letterman interview series “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” and The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale to be hosted by Joel McHale (like obviously), the streaming service has roped in Michelle Wolf to host her own weekly Netflix late-night series. She recently made her HBO stand-up debut with Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady, which was an hour long of stand-up featuring her observations on feminism, dating, and other social issues.

Wolf has contributed to The Daily Show with Trevor Noah since 2016. She has also worked as a writer on Late Night with Seth Meyers in addition to her work as a stand up. The late night show will be of half an hour, and will not specifically focus on politics, but instead world events. Besides hosting, Michelle will also executive produce along with Daniel Bodansky. Dan Powell and Christine Nangle will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers.

Michelle also created and starred in two digital series, Now Hiring and Used People for Comedy Central. She also wrote for the 88th Academy Awards telecast that was hosted by Chris Rock.
