Maya Rudolph is coming (back) to NBC – for one night, at least. The Maya Rudolph Show, a special described as a revival of the classic variety show format, is set to air May 19 at 10/9c, the network announced Tuesday.
Several familiar faces will be joining the former Saturday Night Live star for her big night, including Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), Fred Armisen (Late Night With Seth Meyers), Chris Parnell (Archer), Craig Robinson (The Office) and Sean Hayes (Hollywood Game Night).
Janelle Monae is billed as the special’s musical guest, with Raphael Saadiq serving as bandleader.
