Yet another former Daily Show correspondent is getting their own political comedy series, and today it‚Äôs Hasan Minhaj‚Äôs turn to give it a go with his new Netflix series Patriot Act, which will attempt to ‚Äúexplore the modern geopolitical and cultural landscape through a comedic lens.‚ÄĚ
Sounds good, the NSA-lite spies say in the show‚Äôs trailer, but it‚Äôs no Nailed It.
We previously reported on Minhaj‚Äôs upcoming show but now we know a little more. Patriot Act will try to blend the Daily Show format of its forefathers with something with a little more “depth and sincerity,‚ÄĚ as the press release goes. Okay, we don’t know that much more. I guess we’ll just have to tune in when it premieres on October 28.
