New updates on Maya Rudolph's variety show special have emerged. Titled "The Maya Rudolph Show", the one-hour special which will serve as a pilot for a possible ongoing version is set to air May 19 at 10 P.M. on NBC.

Guest list for the show has also been revealed. Rudolph's fellow "Saturday Night Live" alumni Andy Samberg and Fred Armisen, Kristen Bell, Chris Parnell, Craig Robinson and Sean Hayes will appear as guests, with Janelle Monae as musical performer and Raphael Saadiq serving as bandleader.

"SNL" creator Lorne Michaels executive produces the variety show special along with Rudolph, David Javerbaum, Erin David and Dave Becky.

After leaving "SNL" in 2007, Rudolph has starred in a number of films including 2011's "Bridesmaids" which reunited her with another former "SNL" regular, Kristen Wiig. She also had a regular role on NBC's "Up All Night", but the show was canceled following one of the leads, Christina Applegate's departure.
