David Spade is set to star and produce in his own Comedy Central pilot titled “Verified with David Spade”. According to the Deadline exclusive, the weekly show will aim to skewer pop culture and news through the lens of social media, set in front of a studio audience.
The show will also include in-studio bits, panel discussions and field pieces.
Regarding the series, Spade noted:
“I’m excited to be working with Comedy Central again especially on a show like this. “Everyone’s on their phones looking at Instagram and all social media every day but there’s no show about it. It’s time people look up from their phones and see a show about what’s on their phones.”
Spade is also working with Audible with “A Polaroid Guy in a Snapchat World”, which is set to premiere July 19. Spade will provide audio for the memoir about his experiences with ageing. It will focus on on Spade’s then and now, navigating fame, dating, social media and dealing with a friend from high school who has become his full time plus-1.
