Jim Jeffries Gets A Comedy Central Series

Australian comedian Jim Jefferies (FX’s “Legit”) has been tapped to host a weekly half-hour late-night talk show on Comedy Central.

The show will feature Jefferies taking on culture, politics and more in the untitled series. “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” writer Jason Reich will serve as head writer.

Jefferies, Scott Zabielski, Alex Murray and Tim Sarkes will exec produce with the ten episode run set to debut in the summer. Jeffries made headlines recently for his appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher” where he chastised fellow panelist Piers Morgan.
