Pop is getting into the late night talk show business. Well, the fake late night show business that is. Recently, the network announced their new scripted comedy, Nightcap, will premiere this summer.
This summer, Pop is also premiering their Big Brother companion series, Big Brother: After Dark.
From Ali Wentworth, Nightcap offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the fictional late night talk show, The Nightcap with Jimmy. The series stars Wentworth and others in the minutes leading up to the talk show’s live premiere.
According to AdWeek, the comedy will feature appearances from Michael J. Fox, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Paul Rudd.
NIGHTCAP: Produced by award-winning studio Lionsgate, NIGHTCAP is a clever, over-the-top culture-commentary comedy that dives into the hilarity that ensues behind-the-scenes of a fictitious late-night talk show, “The Nightcap with Jimmy.” The 10-episode original scripted comedy series stars Ali Wentworth (“In Living Color,” “Head Case,” “It’s Complicated,” “Office Space”) and features a mix of improvisational actors and real-life celebrities. Each half-hour episode covers the hectic minutes prior to a live airing of a late-night talk show, which are fraught with insanity, urgency, absurdity, laughter and lip-sync rehearsals. Produced by Ali Wentworth, Tom Brunelle and Brad Wollack, Zero Point Zero and Troy Miller/Dakota Films for Lionsgate, NIGHTCAP is set to premiere in Summer 2016.”
