HBO signs Sarah for comedy series

Posted by Gator on December 18th, 2014

The Hollywood Reporter says Sarah has signed on to star in a pilot for a new, yet untitled, comedy for HBO. She will also be one of five producers of the show.

Sarah Silverman is returning to HBO.

The untitled comedy is described as a comedic look at a pathologically honest woman (Silverman) having a modern midlife crisis.

Silverman will star and executive produce the comedy. Secret Diary of a Call Girl‘s Lucy Prebble will pen the script and exec produce alongside Silverman, Ash Atalla (Trollied, Cuckoo), Silverman’s manager Amy Zvi, and Dan Hine (Cuckoo).

The new Silverman vehicle brings the actress back into the HBO fold following People in New Jersey, the comedy pilot from SNL’s Lorne Michaels and Bruce Eric Kaplan (Girls) that did not move forward. That comedy centered on life today as told through the prism of an adult brother (Topher Grace) and sister (Silverman) living in New Jersey.

Should HBO’s new Silverman vehicle go to series, it would mark her first small-screen series role since Comedy Central’s The Sarah Silverman Program.

Repped by CAA, Thruline and Ziffren Brittenham, Silverman’s credits include a recurring role on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, Bob’s Burgers and Wreck-It Ralph. She recently picked up an outstanding writing in a variety special Emmy for her HBO comedy special Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles, which was also nominated for best variety special. We Are Miracles recently earned a Grammy nomination for best comedy album. She’ll next be seen in the Sundance drama I Smile Back.

For HBO, the Silverman vehicle marks its second comedy pilot in the works, joining its untitled newspaper entry from Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin (which is being redeveloped). On the drama side, the cabler still has Laughs Unlimited in the works.

The pilot order comes as HBO is preparing its next batch of offerings after picking up comedies Togetherness, The Brink and Ballers to series in addition to reviving The Comeback.

SNL audience victim of Sarah does AMA

Posted by Gator on October 6th, 2014

CapLindseyLapHere’s a Q and the A from the Reddit AMA hosted by Lindsey, the audience member on whose lap Sarah sat as part of the monologue on the October 4 Saturday Night Live. (Lindsey was great, by the way. Watch the clip if you haven’t already; Sarah goes into the audience at 5:45 remainder time.)

Q: Wow, this is awesome, thanks for doing this! I was watching with my buddies last night and I was insisting to them that they had to have let the person know that she was going to be in the monologue on live TV. Guess I was wrong :) Anyways, what was going through your head as Sarah was walking up to you and about to sit on your lap?

A: Nope I had no clue, and I have no connections whatsoever to the show, other than being a fan! (People asked me that afterwards. They thought it was scripted.)

What was running through my head: “holy shit, no this is not happening. Is this for real? Uh, I have to say something?! Don’t fuck up, don’t fuck up… Sit up straight. My hand is on her back – where do I put my hand? I shouldn’t leave it on her back, right? Don’t look at the screen. Shit, I looked at the screen. My friends and family are probably going crazy – I can’t believe this is happening!” And I felt like it lasted forever! Definitely one of the most memorable moments of my life.

And here’s more from Lindsey about her experience at the show: (more…)
