Chris Rock, who used to have a late-night series on HBO, steps back into that arena with a new FX series that will feature comedian W. Kamau Bell.

Rock is to be executive producer for the ‘Untitled Chris Rock/W. Kamau Bell Late Night Show,’ which is scheduled to premiere this summer on the cable network with six installments. Plans call for the weekly half-hour series to feature Bell dissecting pop culture, race, politics, religion, the media and sex.


Bell is a founding member of the comedy group Laughter Against the Machine and has a popular comedy album, ‘Face Full of Flour.’

FX executive vice president of original programming Nick Grad called Kamau ‘a tremendous young comedian who has a very smart and sharp take on life. Working with Chris will only bring out the best of his talents.’
