Hasan Minaj is leaving The Daily Show and heading to Netflix again, but this time, he's staying awhile.
The Davis native and UC Davis grad is getting his own weekly Netflix political talk show, according to a Hollywood Reporter exclusive.
The deal makes Minaj the first Indian-American to host a weekly comedy show and gives him, "an opportunity to explore the modern cultural and political landscapes with depth and sincerity."
The comedian starred in an hour-long Netflix, "Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King", which was filmed in his hometown at the Mondavi Center of the Performing Arts. His name quickly became more prominent after making headlines for taking jabs at President Trump while performing at the White House Correspondents Dinner last year.
Minaj is said to have produced his own pilot, sparking a heated bidding war which included his current home, Comedy Central, where he is a correspondent on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah", according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Netflix ultimately won the battle and is now committed to 32 episodes, which will roll out later this year.
