Netflix orders Hasan Minhaj comedy

Hasan Minhaj joined The Daily Show in 2014

Global streamer Netflix has made a 32-episode order for a weekly comedy show fronted and executive produced by Indian-American comedian Hasan Minhaj.

Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj has been co-created by Prashanth Venkataramanujam, who will also exec produce alongside showrunner Jim Margolis.

The show is being produced by Art & Industry and Heaven Entertainment, with Michelle Caputo, Shannon Hartman and Jennie Church-Cooper also among the executive producers.

It will explore the modern cultural and political landscape through Minhaj’s comedic voice to investigate the larger trends shaping the world.

Last year the comedian starred in one-hour Netflix comedy special Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King, which earned him a 2018 Peabody Award.

Minhaj joined The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in November 2014 as a correspondent and continued in the role when Trevor Noah took over as host the following year.

He is also set to star, as part of his Goatface comedy quartet, in a one-hour special for Comedy Central later this year. Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj will debut on Netflix on Sunday October 28.
