IFC Developing Scripted Comedy from Jon Benjamin; CBS to Showcase Late Night Talk After Super Bowl 50

Jon Benjamin

Passion, lust, sex, desire, fantasy... and laughter? IFC is developing the scripted comedy series Jon Benjamin's 100 Erotic Nights created and written by Jon Benjamin (Jon Benjamin Has a Van, Archer, Bob's Burgers) and Leo Allen (Jon Benjamin Has a Van, Nathan for You, Review). The comedy network has commissioned a pilot presentation, which shoots this week in New York City. The presentation is produced by PFFR and executive produced by Alyson Levy, John Lee, and Vernon Chatman, in addition to Benjamin and Allen. Jon Benjamin stars in and narrates this comedic and wild anthology series of 100 very personal, lurid tales of secret passion, burning desire and ruthless betrayal. Benjamin's narrator is overcome with confessions of love, lust, romance and sex, from the local waitress to a church nun, to a lover who's revealed to be a robot. The narrator exists solely to "bare" witness to all the passion in the world around us, while never benefitting from it himself.


Stephen Colbert

CBS announced that a special live edition of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will be broadcast immediately following Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016, from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City from 10:00-11:00 PM ET/7:00-8:00 PM PT (time is approximate after post-game coverage). The Colbert-hosted The Late Show will be the first late night series ever to air in the post-Super Bowl slot. The late night party on the Network will continue after late local news with a special Super Bowl Sunday edition of The Late Late Show with James Corden at 11:35 PM-12:35 AM ET/8:35PM-9:35PM PT (time is approximate).
