TBS Orders A Sixth Season of Emmy Award-Winning Late Night Talk Show "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee"

Network Also Renews First Look Deal with Samantha Bee's Production Company Swimsuit Competition

LOS ANGELES - December 16, 2020 - After just barely avoiding the fall of democracy and despite a literal ongoing plague, TBS is thrilled to announce the renewal of its Emmy Award-winning show "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" for a sixth season. A trailblazing force in late night, "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" has continued to use political satire to entertain, educate, and empower viewers while keeping the government in check. This year, Bee also blazed an actual trail from her NYC studio to her backyard, where she taped new episodes during the pandemic with help from her husband and fellow Executive Producer, Jason Jones. As ad-supported cable's #1 late-night show, "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" continues to reach nearly 3.5 million viewers per episode and currently boasts more than 440 million YouTube views. Season six will premiere Wednesday, January 13 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.

"It's a huge honor to get to keep doing this crazy smart and silly show for a sixth season," said Samantha Bee. "Is it official though? Are we still waiting for Pennsylvania to certify the sixth season?"

"I'm so proud to have Sam part of the TBS family. After creating award-winning episodes from the dire elements of her backyard, I can't wait to see what she does with some electricity and a roof over her head, said Brett Weitz, General Manager TNT TBS and truTV. "She is a champion for important causes and brings issues to light that inspire, entertain and educate."

Additionally, TBS has renewed its first look deal with Bee's production company, Swimsuit Competition, that focuses on developing amusing original content that is definitely worth spending a weekend bingeing. Swimsuit Competition continues to seek great ideas from people who are flying under the radar, or whose work has been underestimated.

One of TIME's 100 Most Influential People, Samantha Bee continues to lead the charge by not only shining a light on issues of political and cultural significance through the show's reporting, but by implementing meaningful change through the show which regularly creates significant charitable initiatives during times of crisis. "Full Frontal" launched the #MailedIt campaign in support of the United States Postal Service and pioneered paid family leave by offering her staffers the most extensive policy in the entertainment industry. The Emmy-winning show has continued to receive recognition, most recently winning the Writers Guild Award in February.

"Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" shines a spotlight on stories inside the Beltway and beyond, from sexual harassment in the media to the "boyfriend loophole," and from global warming to child marriage in the United States. "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" also travels the world to cover international stories, with segments from Jordan, Germany, Russia, Scotland, Mexico and Iraq. In its first five seasons, "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" has garnered an Outstanding Writing Emmy for its "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner" special honoring a free press, as well as seventeen Emmy nominations, a Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in News and Information, two additional TCA Award nominations, a WGA nomination, two PGA nominations and four DGA nominations. The series is executive produced by Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Tony Hernandez of Jax Media, Miles Kahn, Alison Camillo, and Pat King. "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" airs on Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
