Michael Che Lands a Six Episode Comedy Sketch Series with HBO Max

HBO Max is set to give Saturday Night Live star Michael Che his own comedy series. 

It will be an Untitled Project that will contain six episodes which will cover topics such as police brutality, unemployment, and falling in love. The original comedy series will use sketches and vignettes to illustrate what the event feels like from an African American point of view. 

The streamer said the show will focus less about being “right” and will instead focus on being more honest even if they risk the show being controversial. 

“I’m really excited to be working on this show with HBO Max, ” said Che. “It’s a project I’ve been thinking about for a while and we have a lot of sketches we want to shoot so please wear your masks so that we can go into production.” 

Suzanna Makkos, Executive Vice President of Original Comedy and Animation for HBO Max said, “ Michael brings a distinct comedic perspective as he illustrates the uncomfortable truths across multiple topics. 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. 

“Che is an amazing talent and comic voice and , of course, another opportunity to collaborate with Broadway Video and my friend Lorne is an added benefit.” said Kevin Reilly, Chief Content Officer HBO Max and President of TNT, TBS, and TruTv.
