Starring the titular comedian, the show will feature interviews, musical numbers, guest stars, sketches, and unscripted and unpredictable interactions with everyday people. In the trailer, Ziwe gives a taste of this by smashing ukuleles with Phoebe Bridgers and asking Fran Lebowitz, “What bothers you more, slow walkers or racism?”
“Ziwe” is produced by A24 and executive produced by Ziwe, Jamund Washington and Hunter Speese.
Also in today’s TV news roundup, Discovery Plus announced the release of a special featuring exclusive filming and broadcast access to the finding of an ancient Egyptian city in Luxor. The special will follow the Egyptian mission under Dr. Zahi Hawass that resulted in the discovery of a city — The Rise of Aten — lost under the sands 3,000 years ago. The city dates to the reign of Amenhotep III and continued to be used by Tutankhamun and Ay.
