Joel McHale to host aptly titled Netflix show
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.
