The political and pop culture show, which will have a live audience, will air in the 11 PM timeslot. Erin Gibson (Parks and Recreation, Kroll Show) and Bryan Safi (Modern Family, Superstore) star as themselves, sharing their perspective on today’s hot topics.
The TV Land pickup comes amid an explosion of late night shows, including History’s upcoming Night Class comedy block, a companion to Craig Ferguson’s new late-night show, Join or Die, along with TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, TruTV’s Late Night Snack, and the list goes on.
Creators Gibson and Safi launched Throwing Shade as a podcast in 2011, a yearly, multi-city, sold-out touring stage show in 2012, and in 2013, Funny Or Die picked it up for a video series. The TV Land show will be executive produced by Gibson and Safi, as well as Funny Or Die’s Andrew Steele, Anna Wenger and Joe Farrell, and Charlie Siskel (Review, Tosh.0) will executive produce and serve as showrunner.
