David Spade’s upcoming Comedy Central late-night show has a name and a premiere date.
“Lights Out With David Spade” is set to launch on Monday, July 29 in the timeslot following “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah.”
Per the network, the show will feature Spade’s “signature take” on the pop culture news of the day and include a rotating group of Spade’s comedian and celebrity friends, while also incorporating sketches and field segments. Watch a preview for the show above.
The show is executive produced by Spade, Alex Murray and Marc Gurvitz. Brad Wollack and Tom Brunelle of Free 90 Media serve as executive producers and showrunners. Frank Sebastiano is head writer and executive producer, with Chelsea Davison as supervising producer. Liz Plonka directs.
Jonas Larsen, Tara Schuster and Daniel Wolfberg are the executives in charge of production for Comedy Central.
“Lights Out” will be Comedy Central’s latest go at filling the late-night slot vacated by “The Colbert Report” back when Stephen Colbert moved on to CBS’s “The Late Show” back in 2014. Previous attempts included “The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore” and Jordan Klepper’s short-lived “The Opposition.”
