Trevor Noah’s 'The Daily Show' to Air First Daytime Special 'Remotely Educational'
Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show will have its first-ever daytime special.
Noah will host a half-hour special, The Daily Show With Trevor Noah Presents: Remotely Educational, set to premiere Wednesday, March 10. The special will host remote-learning classes in favor of lessons that students will actually need in life.
"So, I asked the team here at The Daily Show to help put together a lesson plan for you guys. And not just any lesson, but the lessons you won't learn in school but that you need to know, before life teaches them to the hard way," Noah says in the trailer for the special.
Correspondents Ronny Chieng, Michael Kosta, Desi Lydic, Dulcé Sloan and Roy Wood Jr. as well as contributors Jordan Klepper and Lewis Black will join the special to "teach" about topics such as commerce, parts of the government everyone will meet in real life, geography and more. K-Pop sensation NCT 127 will also join to offer an extra-credit lesson.
Noah will executive produce alongside Jen Flanz and Jill Katz, with Ian Berger and Elise Terrell serving as co-executive producers. Ian Berger will direct along with Segment Directors Stacey Angeles, Sebastian DiNatale and David Paul Meyer.
Pamela DePace and Ramin Hedayati are supervising producers; Zhubin Parang is supervising producer and writer; and David Angelo is producer and head writer; Jocelyn Conn and Ryan Middleton are producers. Ari Pearce and Michael Stanger are the executives in charge of production for Comedy Central.
Remotely Educational will premiere Wednesday, March 10, at 8:30 a.m. ET/PT and again during The Daily Show’s regular time at 11 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central. The special will be available the following morning on Paramount+.
