jimjefferies-freedumbJim Jefferies is headed to Comedy Central with a new late night show. According to Variety, the network has ordered 10 episodes of a weekly, half-hour late night series starring Jefferies, which was ordered to pilot last year. The show will “take on culture and politics” and “show Jeffries traveling around the world to take on the top issues and most controversial stories of the week.” Jason Reich (Daily Show, Full Frontal) will serve as head writer and co-executive producer on the show, which is slated to debut sometime this summer.
