Adam Conover, best known as the host of Adam Ruins Everything, has a new gig. Today it was announced that he will be partnering up with Netflix and the Obamas’ production company, Higher Ground, for a new series titled The G Word with Adam Conover.
The series will show viewers the inside workings of the government, and the civil servants who make it what it is. The series is described at being part satirical (to match Conover’s style as host) with part documentary elements mixed within. The Fifth Risk, the best-selling book written by Michael Lewis and was optioned by Higher Ground back in 2018, loosely serves as the subject material.
The G Word with Adam Conover, which will be executive produced by Conover, Jon Cohen, Jon Wolf and Higher Ground’s Tonia Davis and Priya Swaminathan, will begin production in early 2021.
