We look forward to sharing his unique vision and necessary point of view with our audiences.”
Michael Che along with Lorne Michaels, and Erin Doyle will be the executive producers for the Untitled Michael Che Project and will be produced by Universal Tv, a division of Universal Studio Group and Broadway Video.
