Internet sensation and comedian Grace Helbig is to star in the new TV comedy-talk show hybrid The Grace Helbig Project for E! Entertainment, the cable network announced.
The program is slated to premiere in primetime this April.
"This show is a fresh take on the conventional talk show with a very unconventional host who has already captured an enormous fan base of young viewers on the web," Jeff Olde, the network's executive vice president of original programming and development, said in a statement Monday. "As we continue to seek out programming that offers a rich multiplatform experience, we are excited to launch this forward-thinking talk show that speaks so perfectly to our audience and to the core of E!'s pop-culture brand."
"Congratulations to E! for giving an Internet-obsessed introvert a talk show. I'm looking forward to working with humans," Helbig added.
