Sarah Silverman appeared in the HBO comedies “Mr. Show with Bob and David” and “The Larry Sanders Show” and 2013 stand-up special “We Are Miracles,” for which she won an Emmy.

Now she’s returning to the cable network with two new projects: a comedy special and a late-night series she describes as “weighing in on the mishugas” of the week and taking live video calls. “I’m as passionate talking about my face-washing routine as I am talking about why billionaires cost us money,” Silverman said. “Nothing’s off the table and nothing’s too high or low brow for me. I mean – look at my face – I’m literally all brow.”

Silverman, who will produce the series with Judd Apatow and Amy Zvi, is currently shooting romantic comedy “Marry Me” with Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson. She is also adapting her memoir “The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee” as a musical.
