According to Deadline, Hulu has ordered a weekly, half-hour talk show tentatively titled I Love You, America that will be hosted by Sarah Silverman. The show will involve Silverman discussing “the current political/emotional landscape of the country” with people who share her political leanings and those who don’t, all in an attempt to “expose the fact that we are all the same.” The goal of the show is to present a “balanced” view of topical issues “through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others,” and Silverman “not taking herself too seriously.” Luckily, Deadline also notes that the show “promises to be funny,” so that’s good.

I Love You, America already has a 10-episode order, and it apparently sparked a bit of a bidding war from “both ad-supported and pay services,” but Hulu won in the end.
