Nothing to see here…yet.
Comedy Central today released a promo for David Spade’s new late-night series, Lights Out with David Spade, but there’s nothing to see here, other than an extreme close up of the comedian and actor. No look at a set yet, no sense of what’s to come. Just a cute little video of Spade pontificating True Detective style about time.
But the network did let us know that the series will premieres Monday, July 29 at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT. The series, hosted by the iconic comedian, will follow The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Monday through Thursday each week.
The series will feature Spade’s signature take on the pop culture news of the day. The nightly series will include a rotating group of Spade’s comedian and celebrity friends, while also incorporating sketches and field segments.
Lights Out with David Spade joins a growing slate of new and returning series at Comedy Central including: docu-series Klepper; scripted comedies South Side, Awkwafina and Robbie; and sketch-comedy series Alternatino with Arturo Castro.
The show is executive produced by Spade, Alex Murray and Marc Gurvitz. Brad Wollack and Tom Brunelle of Free 90 Media serve as executive producers and showrunners. Frank Sebastiano is head writer and executive producer, with Chelsea Davison as supervising producer. Liz Plonka is the director of Lights Out with David Spade. Jonas Larsen, Tara Schuster and Daniel Wolfberg are the Executives in Charge of production for Comedy Central.
