The Saturday Night Live "Weekend Update" co-anchor is reteaming with Lorne Michaels on a six-part sketch comedy series for HBO Max. Each episode of the untitled series will feature sketches focusing on a different theme, such as police brutality, romance or unemployment, from a Black vantage point. HBO Max said the show was less about being “right” and more about being honest, even at the risk of 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.” It's unlikely that Che is exiting SNL since Michaels is serving as executive producer, reports Deadline's Peter White, "but it is somewhat surprising that the show is being made for WarnerMedia’s HBO Max rather than NBCUniversal’s own streaming service Peacock, which debuts tomorrow."
