Throughout the history of late night , all the major broadcast networks have had an absence of female late night talk show hosts. Even the roster of interim hosts for The Late Late Show that bridges the gap between Craig Ferguson exiting and James Corden starting doesn’t have a female guest host so far as we know.
So, Lauren Graham has taken it upon herself to co-write and star in a sitcom about their being a fictional one trying to make her way in what has been a field almost entirely populated by white men in America since its inception. NBC has taken on the project, titled Kate on Later, for development and Ellen DeGeneres has boarded the project as an executive producer.
Perhaps, this might resemble a female led Larry Sanders Show and we’re absolutely on board for that.
