SIRIUSXM RADIO "OPIE AND JIMMY" co-host and standup comic JIM NORTON and two prominent podcasters -- "COMMUNITY" and "RICK AND MORTY" creator DAN HARMON and comedian SARA SCHAEFER -- will be producing television pilots that have been ordered by IFC.
The network has ordered pilots for an untitled NORTON half-hour talk show for late nights, produced with MATADOR; HARMON's "GREAT MINDS," with comedians playing 'history's "greatest minds"' discussing trending topics, produced by MATADOR; and SCHAEFER's "1320 SECONDS," a satirical news magazine with female correspondents (and one male). HARMON hosts the podcast "HARMONTOWN" for FERAL AUDIO and SCHAEFER hosts "LIES WITH SARA SCHAEFER" for NEW YORK PUBLIC RADIO News-Talk WNYC-A/NEW YORK's podcast division and NERDIST PODCAST NETWORK.
