Created by Sam Jay (Netflix’s “Sam Jay: 3 in the Morning”) and Prentice Penny (HBO’s “Insecure”), the series features a new take on the late-night talk show format and uses a fresh lens to plunge into the cultural issues that divide us. Each week, Sam hosts a party at her apartment, where she and her guests explore current topics.
