HBO has enjoyed tremendous success with Bill Maher in their weekly late night slot, and even greater success in the web-only segment of the show “Overtime”, but now they’re taking it to the next level with “Overtime After Dark,” set to premiere in 2014.
“The show is good,” said Barry Goldsteinburg, acting agent for Bill Maher, “but with the continued success of Overtime we just felt it was the right time to take it to the next level.”
“Overtime After Dark will pick up where Real Time Overtime leaves off, and continue with the panel and other special guests for up to two hours per night, right at the end of Real Time with Bill Maher. It is set to broadcast exclusively on NetFlix and be available in a live streaming format within 5-10 seconds of the time it is recorded.
Bill Maher was quoted as saying, “F*ck it, I’ve only got a few years left and they’re paying a fortune, so why not dry hump the hell out of my guests to keep them saying crazy stuff on the air.”
A representative from HBO went on the record as saying, “Woah, NO! You cannot record me on the record, that was part of our deal.”
The 90-minute post-post show is set to debut on NetFlix in early 2014 with surprise guests Seth Rogan, Joe Rogan, Ron Reagan, Reagan Dunn, and dun-dun-dun!!! Another guest too surprising to mention. Spoiler alert, it’s a bear on a tricycle named John Boehner.
