See Clip From Pilot Now!

New York, NY - April 15, 2016 - TV Land is getting into the late night game with a series pick-up for "Throwing Shade," the hit podcast and Funny Or Die video series, with a 10-episode order, slated to premiere in January 2017 in the 11pm ET/PT timeslot. The political and pop culture late night show, which will have a live audience, stars Erin Gibson ("Parks and Recreation," "Kroll Show") and Bryan Safi ("Modern Family," "Superstore") as themselves and will bring their unique perspective to the hottest topics of today, from feminism and gay rights to the latest celebrity nonsense.

See a clip from the pilot below:

"This amazing, weird brainchild of Erin and Bryan translates perfectly into a weekly late night show," said Keith Cox, Executive Vice President, Development and Original Programming, TV Land. "We can't wait to see them take on the most recent and ridiculous news of 2017."

Creators Gibson and Safi launched "Throwing Shade" as a podcast in 2011, a yearly, multi-city, sold-out touring stage show in 2012, and in 2013, Funny Or Die picked it up for a video series. The TV Land show will be executive produced by Gibson and Safi, as well as Funny Or Die's Andrew Steele, Anna Wenger and Joe Farrell, and Charlie Siskel ("Review," "Tosh.0") will executive produce and serve as showrunner.

"Throwing Shade" is the latest in a series of projects that are reinventing TV Land into a destination for contemporary, fresh original programming. The network recently announced a pilot script order for a TV anthology series based on the 1989 cult film "Heathers," and pilot orders for a comedy called "Nobodies," from executive producers Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone, an adaptation of "The First Wives Club" from "Sex and the City's" Jenny Bicks and "New Girl's" Rebecca Addelman, and an untitled project based on the real life of Kyle Richards ("The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills") from multiple Emmy(R) Award-winners John Wells ("Shameless," "The West Wing") and John Riggi ("30 Rock").
