Amanda Seales: I Be Knowin’, written by Seales and directed by Stan Lathan, will be produced by Jesse Collins Entertainment. The special was announced today by Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president, HBO Programming.
“Being a stand-up comic is an honor I don’t take lightly,” Seales said, “because I consider humor to be a superpower that allows us to bear the weight of issues and concepts that otherwise seem so much bigger than us.
Lathan has directed comedy specials by Dave Chappelle, as well as episodes of Real Husbands of Hollywood andThe Soul Man, among other credits.
Seales’ performance at the Edison Ballroom will tape Sunday, Nov. 25. Executive producers are Jesse Collins and Amanda Seales.
