Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Nerdist’s Chris Hardwick is set to host a currently untitled late night TV show on Comedy Central this fall. Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant will run the show which will be produced by Funny or Die.
The untitled show, which will launch in the fall, will air four nights a week at midnight, following The Colbert Report, giving the network a 11 PM-12:30 AM block anchored by The Daily Show. Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant will serve as executive producers/showrunners on the Chris Hardwick show, returning to Comedy Central, where they co-created and starred on the cult series Reno 911! The show, Comedy Central’s first midnight strip, will be formatted as a comedic panel show that will have a heavy social-media presence integrated throughout.
