Hasan Minhaj's Netflix Series - Premiere Date for 'Patriot Act'

Hasan Minhaj is the first Indian American to host a weekly comedy show

Back in March Netflix announced its historical plans of having the first Indian-American host (Hasan Minhaj) for an upcoming comedy show. "I've been a big fan of Hasan's for many years", Netflix's VP of content, Bela Bajaria, said.

Minhaj is departing "The Daily Show" to host the weekly Netflix program.

The weekly show is set to premiere on October 28, with Minhaj using his "unique comedic voice and storytelling skill to explore the larger trends shaping our fragmented world", according to a show description. Each week, Minhaj will look into the "larger trends shaping our fragmented world" with his "unique comedic voice and storytelling skill". Netflix has ordered 32 initial episodes of the show. It's slated to premiere on Sunday, Oct. 28.

And he isn't the only Daily Show alum to make the jump to Netflix: Former correspondent Michelle Wolf recently wrapped Season 1 of her weekly series The Break, which the streamer has yet to renew for Season 2.

Earlier this year and before Hisan Minhaj hosted another Trumpless White House Correspondents Dinner, Netflix revealed that The Daily Show standout would soon join their fold with his own comedy talk show. He won a Peabody Award for that special. His widely praised roast of President Donald Trump (who was not in attendance) and the administration launched the comedian further into the national spotlight. He's also beginning a 16-city North American tour, "Before the Storm", on August 11.
