Hulu has picked up a 10-episode order of Sarah Silverman’s new show, called “I Love You, America.”
The project promises to “discuss the current political/emotional landscape of the country,” according to Deadline. So even though it’s no secret that Silverman is a devout liberal, viewers can expect the comedian to grapple with opposing viewpoints and engage with people she may not agree with.
Thirty-minute episodes will air weekly on the streaming service. Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Amy Zvi are signed on to executive produce.
Hulu confirmed the news via Twitter:
Not the sort to keep her opinions secret, Silverman has been critical of President Donald Trump. The comedian recently walked back suggestions of a military coup against the president, explaining in a tweet that “FEAR can motivate even peacenik snowflakes 2 incite violence.”
Silverman was an outspoken Bernie Sanders supporter during the 2016 Democratic primaries, but eventually called for party unity behind Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention.
