Sarah’s HBO comedy special, Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, will air November 23, the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association (TCA) summer press tour. The special, taped in May, is directed by Liam Lynch, who directed Sarah’s 2005 concert movie, Jesus Is Magic, credited by some as having accelerated her career.
In April, Variety reported that Heidi Herzon, Mike Farah, Anna Wenger, Betsy Koch, Amy Zvi and Sarah would executive produce the special for Funny or Die and Black Gold Films. At that time, Michael Lombardo, head of programming at HBO, stated, “Sarah Silverman is a fresh, fearless and utterly original comedy voice. I’m thrilled that we can bring the humor of this unique talent to our viewers,” — a quote that is being widely reprinted in reporting about Thursday’s announcement.
