Sarah Silverman planning return to television


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It has been years since comedian Sarah Silverman had a television platform for her intelligent, provocative material. But the wheels have been set in motion that might return Silverman to the small screen.

She’s currently working on a new project with Jon Schroeder and Dan Sterling, collaborators on Comedy Central’s “The Sarah Silverman Program,” that is part of a deal Silverman made with Imagine Television, THR reports. No network is in play at this time.

Silverman’s Comedy Central program last three seasons. In it, she played a fictionalized version of her own personality (much like Jerry Seinfeld, Tim Allen and Roseanne Barr all have tried in the past).

Over the years, Silverman also has had success in film, starring in “The School of Rock” and “School for Scoundrels.” She’ll next appear with Seth Rogen and Michelle Williams in Sarah Polley’s “Take This Waltz.”

    Well Sean everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I see her as a crude insulting rather vindictive sort of person who tries to guise these traits as comedy. Giving rather a raw nerved show which allows only pleasure at its conclusion. But that’s just me. Perhaps self destructive rants are something which passes as comedy nowadays, sorry if it’s true.
