Hulu is partnering with Sarah Silverman on the new series, I LOVE YOU, AMERICA, and has picked up the show straight-to-series.

Silverman is partnering with Funny or Die for this show, including Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Amy Zvi, who will also serve as executive producers.

I LOVE YOU, AMERICA will star Silverman in a ten-episode weekly half-hour topical show to “discuss the current political/emotional landscape of the country.”

Here’s what the logline tells us: “From inciting treason to telling poop jokes, Sarah Silverman has created her fair share of online chatter, but with this show she’s looking to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously. While it’s great to connect with like-minded people, Silverman feels it’s crucial, now more than ever, to connect with un-like-minded people. She is teaming up with producers Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, and Funny Or Die, in creating a show setting out to expose the fact that we are all the same. Oh, and it will be funny too.”
