Stephen Colbert and Charlamagne Tha God

Comedy legend Stephen Colbert is set to produce Comedy Central's newest late night comedy series.


The series, entitled Tha God's Honest Truth, will be hosted by Lenard McKelvey, AKA Charlamagne Tha God. Fans of McKelvey know him as the host of the nationally syndicated radio show The Breakfast Club. Others may recognize him as co-host of VH1's shortlived reality series, The Wendy Williams Experience. Either way, on Wednesday it was announced that McKelvey would be teaming up with The Late Show host for a new endeavor.

Colbert took to Twitter to announce his involvement with the new series. Comedy Central, the network that picked up Tha God's Honest Truth, used to be the home of The Colbert Report. In the caption, Colbert joked that he misses being able to swear on TV now that he is on primetime television. McKelvey and Colbert go way back. Not only do they both hail from South Carolina, but McKelvey has been a guest on The Late Show over a half dozen times. It's safe to say that the pair has chemistry.

Tha God's Honest Truth airs on Comedy Central on Friday September 17th at 10:00pm ET.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
