Michelle Wolf Netflix Talk Show Comedy

Netflix's push to add more talk shows to its content repertoire is in full force. She has written and contributed on late night favorites including Late Night with Seth Meyers and The Daily Show and after working in the industry for four years, she now has a chance to showcase her talents in a series of her own.

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 trousers banner. The show will attempt to break away from the seriousness of late night comedy.

Michelle Wolf has landed a show of her own. "Instead of making the news fun, [the show will] make fun of everything and everybody" according to a press release. "There will be no preaching or political agenda, unless it's amusing". The new series will premiere later in 2018.
