Comedy Central has announced a new late night series with David Spade.

The “Grown Ups” and “Dickie Roberts” star will lead a new 11:30 p.m. series featuring his signature take on the pop culture news of the day. The yet-to-be-titled nightly series will include a rotating group of Spade’s comedian and celebrity friends, while also incorporating field segments that mirror his popular Instagram stories. The show will follow ”The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” on Monday through Thursday nights starting later this year. 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.

In addition, the network announced the return of “Crank Yankers”, the world’s favorite profane puppets that prank on phones, social media, e-sport platforms and any venue where trouble can be made.
The series, running for 10 episodes in this first batch of eps, will be produced by Jimmy Kimmel’s newly formed production banner KIMMELOT.

Fun casting for IG-88 in The Mandalorian

“Thor Ragnarok” helmer Taika Waititi recently shot an episode of Disney Plus’s “The Mandalorian” – the live-action “Star Wars” TV series that will feature, among others, fan-fave Boba Fett – and now it’s being revealed he’s also playing a character in it.

Showrunner and executive producer Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) has posted a behind-the-scenes pic on Instagram of the beloved filmmaker recording his voice for the part of bounty hunter IG-88. The droid character is best known for his appearance in “The Empire Strikes Back” but he didn’t speak in his brief moments on screen.

Waititi, you may recall, also voiced a part in “Thor Ragnarok” – that of amiable Kiwi rock-guy Korg.

“The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
