Maya Rudolph will make her return to NBC next month with some song and sketch — not to mention, a little help from her famous friends. The network has slated her variety show special, titled The Maya Rudolph Show, to air on May 19 at 10 p.m., and the Saturday Night Live veteran — who recently starred in another Peacock comedy series, Up All Night — will be joined by Kristen Bell, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen, Craig Robinson, Sean Hayes, and Chris Parnell.
Janelle Monáe will pop up as the musical guest, while Raphael Saadiq will serve as bandleader. The one-hour special, which also could double as the pilot for an ongoing series, is being executive produced by Lorne Michaels.
