Sam Jay is entering the late night arena.
Today, HBO dropped the trailer for what they’re calling “a different kind of talk show.” Pause with Sam Jay “features a new take on the late-night talk show format and uses a fresh lens to plunge into the cultural issues that divide us. Each week, Sam hosts a party at her apartment, where she and her guests explore current topics. Conversations are further expanded upon throughout the episode with additional interviews, sketches, and animation. In an era of discord, Sam sets out to listen, learn, and ask questions to those with different perspectives.”
Watching the trailer we caught glimpses of other comedians attending Jay’s party like Rosebud Baker, Mike Recine, Reggie Conquest, Jak Knight, and Vondecarlo Brown.
The 6 episode series was created by Jay, who received a lot of attention for her standout Netflix special last year 3 In The Morning, and Prentice Penny, who is the showrunner for another HBO hit, Insecure.
Pause with Sam Jay debuts on HBO May 21st at 9pm ET.
