Showtime has ordered its first-ever weekly late-night talk show, starring TV and podcast personalities Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, the network announced Monday. The half-hour series will premiere in 2019 and include guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics and beyond.

“We have waited a long time to enter the talk-show space, and we were only going to do it if we felt like we had the next big thing,” said president and CEO of Showtime Networks David Nevins.

“Desus and Mero feel like exactly that: They have knockout comedic voices, they’re brilliant interviewers and they always have a unique take on culture both high and low,” he continued. “They have a loyal and devoted fan base that will only multiply, and we can’t wait to see them take it to the next level on Showtime.”
