We’re kicking off summer with a hot pilot! It’s called Voice of the People written by Paul Scheer & Andrew Guest. It’s a behind the scenes look at the cutthroat world of cable news punditry, where people treat the news like entertainment, in which one woman slowly loses her integrity as a journalist on her path to becoming an “expert.” It was set up at HBO with Adam Mckay’s company, Gary Sanchez attached to produce.

Voice of the People stars Sasheer Zamata as Lucy (Woke, Saturday Night Live), Paul Scheer as Frank (The League, Black Monday), Marc Evan Jackson as Brett (The Good Place, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Nicole Byer as Vanessa (Nailed It, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates), Kate Mulgrew as Kate (Orange is the New Black), Vella Lovell as Dottie/Wanda/Vivian (My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), John Hodgman as Jon Meachum (Coraline, The Daily Show), Gary Anthony Williams as Carl/Roger/Jeffrey/Server (Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle), Jaime Moyer as Eddie Johnson (Modern Family, AP Bio), Eugene Cordero as Donald Liu/Mathew/Reporter/Suited Person (Kong: Skull Island, Tacoma FD), Carlos Alazraqui as Ricardo/Driver (Reno 911!, The Fairly Oddparents), John Clarence Stewart as Greg (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist), Eric Edelstein as Ron/Congressman Davis/Manager/Nandi/Commercial VO/director (Jurassic World), and Andrew Reich with stage directions.
