As of now, the lineup for the specials is impressive. Netflix tapped Aisling Bea, Michelle Buteau, Tim Dillon, JR De Guzman, Janelle James, Josh Johnson, Taylor Tomlinson, Phil Wang, Emma Willmann, Jak Knight, Matteo Lane, Max Silvestri, Sam Jay, Ian Karmel, and Kate Willett for the series. All are industry veterans at this point — Karmel writes for The Late Late Show with James Corden
while Sam Jay is part of the 2017 batch of Saturday Night Live
writers. Michelle Buteau, a regular on WYNC's Two Dope Queens,
recently announced on the podcast that she would spearhead her own WNYC podcast, which is as-of-yet untitled. Both Taylor Tomlinson
and Josh Johnson
made their Conan
debuts last year, and Janelle James is a writer on the BET late night show The Rundown with Robin Thede.
