Over the past year, Audible has been stepping up their game by releasing shows featuring a varied list of comedic talent. And today, they’ve announced two shows featuring even more comedians.
First up, Pete Davidson will be starring in a new series from Audible titled Hit Job. Co-starring Keke Palmer, the show follows “Brynn Morris (Palmer), an aspiring artist desperate for a job to help her ailing grandmother. As a last resort, she takes a job as an administrative assistant at a company with the motto: “Do Bad Things for Good Reasons.” Joining forces with her awkward tech nerd of a coworker Geo (Davidson), she unexpectedly gets swept up in a company-wide contest that forces her to question her morals. Having a killer job suddenly takes on a whole new meaning.”
Rounding out the cast is Max Greenfield, Natasha Lyonne, Mikey Day, Naomi Ekperigin, Matt Bomer, Michelle Collins, Brooke Shields, Bobby Moynihan, Julianne Hough, Aaron Tveit, Tabitha Brown, Tom Bergeron, John Lutz and Okieriete “Oak” Onaodowan. The show was written and created by Eric Cunningham and co-written by Lauren Gurganous and Achilles Stamatelaky, who also serves as director. The show debuts April 22nd.
The second show, titled Hot White Heist, will star Bowen Yang. That show “follows a group of queer contemporaries across the LGBTQIA+ spectrum as they attempt the stickiest heist in history, stealing the U.S. government’s supply of the most valuable substance from some of history’s greatest minds—with the hopes of making money on the black market and buying an island for a new queer paradise. Or, more simply, a sperm bank heist.”
Joining Yang in the all LGBTQIA+ cast includes Cynthia Nixon, Abbi Jacobson, Jane Lynch, Margaret Cho, Bianca Del Rio, MJ Rodriguez, Shannon Woodward, Stephanie Beatriz, John Cameron Mitchell, Cheyenne Jackson, Jonathan Bailey, Peppermint, Brian McCook as Katya Zamolodchikova, and Tony Kushner. The show is written, created, and produced by Adam Goldman with Alan Cumming directing. The show debuts June 17th.
