Sarah Silverman is out to show that Americans can bridge even their deepest differences and enjoy a laugh as well.
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 allowing Silverman to connect with "un-like-minded people" across America. That's regular people, not politicians, and no mockery will be involved, she said.
The show is intended to be intelligent and moving but also silly, Silverman said."Anything smart that's in there will be served in a big, fat, bready sandwich of super, super dumb, because that's how I like my comedy, and I don't like to be told what to think," she said.The edgy comic acknowledged she knows what it's like to be a target, sharing a few of the crude and insulting tweets she's received.
