Sarah Silverman is returning to TV — for one night only.
The comedian, who created and starred in Comedy Central’s “The Sarah Silverman Program” for three years, is heading to HBO for her first comedy special with the premium cable network, “Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles.” Premiering in the fall, “We Are Miracles” is presented in association with Funny or Die.
“Sarah Silverman is a fresh, fearless and utterly original comedy voice,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said. “I’m thrilled that we can bring the humor of this unique talent to our viewers.”
“We Are Miracles” will tape in Los Angeles in May. While it’s Silverman’s first comedy special for HBO, it’s not the first in her career. “Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic” had a limited theatrical release in 2005. Liam Lynch, director of “Jesus Is Magic” will direct, edit and serve as a consulting producer on the upcoming project as well.
