What's So Funny About Diplomacy? Kal Penn's New Show is Set at the UN
Set to air on NBC, Penn's new show will be shot in the contemporary single-camera style of the network’s other great comedies, 30 Rock, The Office, and Parks and Recreation (a show that, coincidentally, is also about government employees.) After taking an enormous risk to stop his career and work at the White House—an experience he calls “humbling” and “awe-inspiring”—Penn has returned to Hollywood without missing a beat. He’s also landed a role in the upcoming season of the top-rated How I Met Your Mother. And, of course, Penn is back as a keynote speaker, talking to audiences about the intersection of politics and pop culture.
