Although previous information about a potential Xbox TV series to be produced by JASH was vague, today more details were announced, including a statement about Sarah’s role in the premiere episode. The JASH comedy show is part of a group of productions called XBox Originals. It appears that the shows will be available only on Xbox platforms. Here’s the new news from Microsoft:
Untitled JASH Comedy/Variety Half Hour
In this unique comedy format developed by Xbox Entertainment Studios with JASH (a comedy collective founded by Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim and Eric and Reggie Watts), the biggest names in comedy will showcase the people that make them laugh. Each week, a different comedian will host/curate a show featuring new and unsung talent, in various video formats. Sarah Silverman will host the pilot episode and Daniel Kellison (“Late Night/Late Show with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Crank Yankers”) will executive produce. The series has a pilot commitment and will begin shooting in June.
