A Japanese Saturday Night Live Premieres This Weekend

Apparently, there are international versions of Saturday Night Live? How did I not know this? There are already Italian and Spanish SNLs, and this weekend marks the debut of Saturday Night Live JPN in Japan. Says Deadline: "Broadway Video Enterprises and Japanese indie producer Yoshimoto Kogyo collaborated on the series, on which Fuju producer Isao Kagari serves in the Lorne Michaels role, pulling cast members from his late-night show Pikaru No Teiri to join a weekly host and musical guest — the same as the American version." Laura Garrison, take note!
