Iliza Shlesinger is getting her own late night show. Freeform announced today that it’s ordered six episodes of a weekly half-hour late night series hosted by Shlesinger that will share the same name as her podcast. Put into development last year, Truth & Iliza will include host’s “societal observations and sketches fueled by her opinions as well as in-studio celebrity guest and expert interviews.” Here’s more on the show from Freeform’s press release:
The show will be centered around a themed question which Iliza will seek to answer using audience interaction, field pieces, commentary and, of course, jokes. Iliza will draw from her decade of stand-up experience to focus on the sociopolitical issues of the day, providing a forum for viewers to discuss everything from the necessary to the inane to the taboo.
The show begins its six-week run on Tuesday, May 2nd at 10:02pm.
