    Football is about to get a whole lot funnier. 

    Saturday Night Live alum Taran Killam will host The NFL Pile On, the league's first official comedy series. The show will drop Wednesdays on Prime Video ahead of the platform's Thursday Night Football coverage, and will feature Killam poking fun at football moments from the previous week. From on-field action to press conference moments, Killam will cover it all. 

    Comedian Sarah Tiana and other special guests will join Killam each week to help him draw the laughs from one of America's favorite sports. 

    "I am so excited and grateful to help launch a show about two things I love: football and comedy," said Killam. "The fact that we are supported by the NFL and Prime Video means we can provide exclusive, all-access content to Prime members and NFL fans alike… and also that I get all The Boys spoilers I can handle."

    The NFL Pile On premieres September 14 at 7pm ET on Prime Video.
