“The deal calls for Chappelle and director Stan Lathan to produce an original special for Netflix. Two other unreleased projects will come from Chappelle’s vault — one produced out of the Austin City Limits Live venue, the other from a performance at the Hollywood Palladium.”
While a premiere date has yet to be announced, the projects are slated for release next year.
“Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy — searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential,”Lisa Nishimura, Netflix’s VP of original documentary and comedy, told Variety. “Dave’s three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy.”
