According to Deadline.com, South African comedian Trevor Noah has landed his own U.S. TV show, working with James Lassiter, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith's Overbrook Entertainment.
The half-hour comedy will run at Fox, and is reportedly inspired by Noah's comedy and life. Noah will produce, according to the website.
A popular comic on the continent, where he has apparently sold more DVDs than any other stand-up, Noah crossed over to the U.S. In 2012, he became the first South African comedian to appear on The Tonight Show and has since also appeared on The Late Show.
