Wanda Sykes fans will be pleased to know that the comedian is getting her very own late night show. Fox included the tentatively titled The Wanda Sykes Show on their 2009 Fall TV schedule.
Below is Fox’s description of the series:
“THE WANDA SYKES SHOW (working title) - Emmy Award-winning actress, comedian and author Wanda Sykes returns to FOX to host the innovative and irreverent new Saturday late-night series, THE WANDA SYKES SHOW (working title). The high-energy one-hour show will feature biting commentary on topical issues and heated panel discussions with recurring personalities. The series’ unique format will highlight Sykes’ outspoken comedic perspective on current events and will also allow her to leave the studio to shoot segments in the field.”
PRODUCTION COMPANY: Fox Television Studios
HOST: Wanda Sykes
I’m a moderate Sykes fan at best but I do think this series has the potential to be worth watching if the “heated panel discussions” really are heated and the field segments are entertaining.
