A Maya Rudolph Variety Show Is Happening At NBC

Rejoice! Maya Rudolph is getting her own variety show on NBC.

According to Deadline, the "Saturday Night Live" alumna will front the variety show pilot that will air as a special after the Winter Olympics. Rudolph will executive produce alongside Lorne Michaels, Erin David and Dave Becky.

Talk of Rudolph fronting a variety show first started in February 2013 when "Up All Night" imploded. The single-camera comedy was going to take a hiatus and return as a multi-camera show with a live audience. Those plans fell apart and Rudolph began getting pilot offers, but shunned them in favor of pursuing the variety show.

Fast forward a year later and her project will air on NBC.
