It’s been announced that Brooks will write and executive producer a new variety series incarnation, History of the World Part II, for Hulu. The writer’s room will begin over Zoom at the end of the month with filming starting in the spring of 2022.
In a statement, Brooks said “I can’t wait to once more tell the real truth about all the phony baloney stories the world has been conned into believing are History!”
Joining Brooks as co-writers and executive producers are Nick Kroll, Wanda Sykes, Ike Barinholtz, David Stassen, and Kevin Salter. So already there’s a lot of big names involved!
