Earlier this year, it was revealed that popular YouTuber Lilly Singh would be making the jump to network television by hosting her own late-night series, A Little Late With Lilly Singh. Today, NBC revealed the show’s premiere date as well as the writing staff behind the series, which is pretty modest in size compared to the other late-night shows currently on television. (The Los Angeles Times checked in on the different shows’ staffs back in June, which range from 9 writers on Desus & Mero to a whopping 23 writers on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show).
Singh’s show will make its NBC debut on Monday, September 16, and take over the 1:35 a.m. time slot previously occupied by Last Call With Carson Daly. John Irwin, who has produced many stand-up specials in recent years (including Adam Sandler’s 100% Fresh and Michelle Wolf’s Nice Lady), will serve as showrunner, and The Late Late Show With James Corden alum Sean O’Connor will serve as head writer. Here’s the full writing staff:
“I’m literally counting down the days until the premiere. It’s 53,” Singh said on the show. “I’m thrilled to be collaborating with this all-star team of writers as we work to bring a new, authentic perspective to late night.” When Singh’s show debuts, she’ll be the only woman hosting a late-night show on network television.
