It started with Chelsea. Then Netflix announced Letterman would host a talk show for the streaming platform. Soon after Joel McHale, Michelle Wolf and Hasan Minhaj joined the list of comedians helming talk shows with Netflix. Today, the latest announcement, Norm Macdonald, is the sixth. But maybe the bigger news is that Macdonald’s new location scout will be none other than old friend, David Letterman.
Titled “Norm Macdonald Has a Show” the show will feature the former SNL Weekend Update anchor hosting, executive producing and showrunning the series. Every episode will have a celebrity guest, jokes, and a look into Norm’s life, and Norm’s podcast co-host Adam Eget will serve as sidekick in the series which sounds a lot like Norm’s on again – off again podcast “Norm Macdonald Live.”
Co-showrunning and EP’ing along with Norm is Lori Jo Hoekstra, plus EPs K.P. Anderson and Daniel Kellison.
