HBO Max announced the order for a six-episode run for an Untitled Michael Che Project starring comedian, Michael Che. The Che’s Untitled Project will be a sketch comedy series. Each episode will revolve around a specific theme. The themes will follow such topics as police brutality, unemployment, and many other things. The Saturday Night Live member will bring forth his perspective regarding these topics from a black vantage point. Che plans on tackling these issues through honesty, and not necessarily trying to be “right.”

Executive Vice President of Original Comedy and Animation for HBO Max, Suzanna Makkos said, “Michael brings a distinct comedic perspective as he illustrates the uncomfortable truths across multiple topics. We are looking forward to sharing his unique vision and necessary point of view with our audiences.” 

With the announcement, Kevin Reily, Chief Content Officer HBO Max and President TNT, TBS, and TruTV had this to say. “Che is an amazing talent and comic voice and, of course, another opportunity to collaborate with Broadway Video and my friend Lorne is an added benefit.”

Che himself added, “I’m really excited to be working on this show with HBO Max. It’s a project I’ve been thinking about for a while and we have a lot of sketches we want to shoot so please wear your masks so that we can go into production.”
