Xbox Orders Variety Show Pilot from JASH Featuring Sarah Silverman and Rotating Hosts
Xbox announced today that they’ve given a pilot commitment to an untitled half hour variety series from JASH’s Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim and Eric, and Reggie Watts not long after announcing their partnership with the comedy collective earlier this month. The show will feature a different comedian host each week, with JASH’s own Sarah Silverman hosting the pilot episode. From Xbox’s release:
In this unique comedy format developed by Xbox Entertainment Studios with JASH (a comedy collective founded by Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim and Eric and Reggie Watts), the biggest names in comedy will showcase the people that make them laugh. Each week, a different comedian will host/curate a show featuring new and unsung talent, in various video formats. Sarah Silverman will host the pilot episode and Daniel Kellison (Late Night/Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Crank Yankers) will executive produce. The series has a pilot commitment and will begin shooting in June.
