The socio-political comedy series will be hosted by standup comedian W. Kamau Bell and premiere this summer.

FX has given a go to another late-night talk show in addition to Russell Brand's "Strangely Uplifting". The freshly picked-up series comes from another top-notch entertainer Chris Rock, who will serve as an executive-producer.

The network has ordered six episodes of the half-hour socio-political series, which is going to star standup comedian W. Kamau Bell. The show is set to have its debut this summer and will "dissect politics, pop culture, race, religion, the media and sex" in weekly basis.

"I think Kamau is one of the funniest guys out there and I can't wait to work with the good people at FX," Rock gushed about the founding member of the comedy group Laughter Against the Machine. Exec VP of Original Programming Nick Grad added, "Kamau is a tremendous young comedian who has a very smart and sharp take on life. Working with Chris will only bring out the best of his talents."

Meanwhile, Brand's talk show "Strangely Uplifting" will also bow this summer, on Thursday, June 28 at 11/10c to be exact. On the same day, Charlie Sheen's brand new sitcom "Anger Management" will premiere at 9/8c with two back-to-back episodes.
