Sarah Sil­ver­man’s show says give love a chance

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Sarah Sil­ver­man is out to show that Amer­i­cans can bridge their deep dif­fer­ences. But the co­me­dian is as ea­ger to make peo­ple laugh as to en­cour­age them to see what they have in com­mon. Speak­ing to a TV crit­ics’ meet­ing Thurs­day, Sil­ver­man said that’s the goal for her fall Hulu se­ries, “I Love You, Amer­ica.” Sil­ver­man said the show is in­tended to be the op­po­site of an echo cham­ber, in­stead mak­ing con­nec­tions with what she called “un­like-minded peo­ple.” The show is in­tended to be smart and mov­ing, but also silly and “ag­gres­sively dumb,” Sil­ver­man said, call­ing that her favourite kind of com­edy.
