    Netflix is continuing to make efforts to take flight in the talk-show space. Joel McHale and David Letterman are already chatting for the streamer, and now comes news that Michelle Wolf will be next.

    Wolf, from “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah,” will host her own half-hour weekly show, which will launch later this year. She generated excitement for her first stand-up special, the cleverly titled “Nice Lady,” which is available on HBO, and she opened for pre-scandal Louis C.K. on tour in 2016. My favorite Wolf credit: She played Ruth Gaydar Ginsburg on “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” where she has done many segments.

    What will the still-untitled show be like? Will it be political? “You can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV,” Wolf says in a statement light on details.
