Sarah Silverman Gets First HBO Special ‘Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles’
Just weeks after HBO aired one of its most successful stand-up specials to date in comedian Louis C.K.’s ‘Oh My God,’ the pay-cable network has announced another high-profile special to feature an equally revered comedian. Sarah Silverman will officially headline her first HBO special with ‘Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles,’ but when will the hotly anticipated special premiere?
Silverman certainly proved herself no slouch with the theatrical release of ‘Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic’ in 2005, but her next major special will hit a bit closer to home. We’ve learned that the comedian and ‘Wreck-It Ralph‘ voice actress will soon take her talents to HBO, premiering her first pay cable special with ‘Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles.’
The special will shoot in Los Angeles in May, with HBO likely eying a fall premiere. Funny Or Die and Black Gold Films will produce the special, which is to be executive produced by Heidi Herzon, Mike Farah, Anna Wenger, Betsy Koch, Amy Zvi and Silverman herself. In the meantime, Silverman will appear in Seth MacFarlane‘s upcoming Western comedy ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West.’
