The Internet is known for eliciting mean comments from people. Now they will be showcased in a potential show on E! The cable network has given a green light to Comments Section, a pilot executive produced by Joel McHale that marks the first project under the The Soup host and executive producer’s new producing deal with E!
It will star comedian Michael Kosta and focus on deconstructing the often snarky comments on popular websites. McHale and his Free Period producing partner, Jason Burns, will executive produce with The Soup showrunner KP Anderson under his Pygmy Wolf Productions banner. Kosta will co-executive produce.
In addition to his duties on E!, McHale stars on comedy series Community, set to return for a new season on Yahoo. He is with WME and Ziffren Brittenham. Kosta’s stand-up album Comedy For Attractive People was released this week on iTunes, Spotify and XM Radio. He is repped by WME and ROAR.
