Representing ONN are producer Liz Koe and writers John Harris, Carol Kolb, Lang Fisher, and Dan Mirk.

Watch a Nice Long Interview with Sarah Silverman and the 'Sarah Silverman Program' Gang

YouTube's Reserve Channel has been releasing excellent extended Paley Center interviews with folks like Louis C.K., the writers of SNL, and Ricky Gervais lately, and they've just put out this new one with Sarah Silverman and the people behind The Sarah Silverman Program. The hour-plus chat was recorded in 2008 and features SSP cast members Brian Posehn, Steve Agee, Jay Johnston, and Laura Silverman, co-creator Rob Schrab, producer Heidi Herzon, writer Dan Sterling, and unfortunately, no Harris Wittels. It's a great, fascinating interview but it could use a little Foam Corner break.
