Joel McHale to host aptly titled Netflix show
Watch the first teaser for 'The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale'
Joel McHale is returning to his hosting roots.
The former The Soup emcee and Community star has landed a new Netflix series, fittingly titled The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale. Executive produced by McHale and Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, the weekly half-hour program will feature celebrity guests, comedy sketches, and video clips.
The comedian announced the news Friday morning with a “first look” at his entirely green-screen set (blame all those Brightorcs for eating up Netflix’s budget).
McHale hosted The Soup, a similar series on E!, for 12 years. The program wrapped up in 2015, the same year that Community signed off (well, until that movie eventually/hopefully happens).
The Joel McHale Show premieres Feb. 18.
