Comedian W. Kamau Bell Launches Late Night Comedy Series To Be Produced By Chris Rock!

Comedy News

Our friends over at Laugh Spin dropped the news two days ago (and we meant to report it then) that the new late night series produced by Chris Rock titled Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell was picked up by FX! The Series starring W. Kamau Bell will drop on August 9th and we hear that they are filming now. Check out the article by Laugh Spin;

It’s official! FX has finalized the schedule for its late-night comedy series executive produced by Chris Rock and starring comedian W. Kamau Bell. Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell will premiere on Thursday, Aug. 9 at 11 pm EST. The show, which Laughspin announced in March, will star Bell along with other contributors sharing commentary and sketch comedy that dissects the topics that have long been the cornerstone of the San Francisco native’s stand-up routine: politics, pop culture, race, religion and the media.

Six half-hour installments of the weekly show will be shot in Brooklyn and executive produced by Chris Rock, Chuck Sklar and Bell. The show has been slowly coming to fruition since Bell received an unexpected phone call from Rock back in 2010, two months after meeting the superstar at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City. Bell and collaborators shot a pilot last November, and FX officially picked up the series earlier this spring. We’re excited now to finally have this date to look forward to!

“I’m going to do the best show I can,” Bell told Laughspin in March. “I have six episodes to make a mark on Hollywood— or a scar on Hollywood. We’ll see how it goes.”
