Netflix is snatching up some of the biggest names in the comedy world. Add Norm Macdonald to the list.

Macdonald has signed up for 10 episodes of “Norm Macdonald Has a Show,” which the comedian referenced on Twitter early Friday.

The news may not come as a shock to fans, especially after the comedian revealed Netflix’s interest in a Reddit AMA back in January. But along with Friday’s news comes some additional official details. Co-host of the “Norm Macdonald Live” Adam Eget will also be joining this new Netflix venture, which will maintain some of the current show’s format: a famous guest and an informal chat. “Norm Macdonald Has a Show” will add the occasional outside-the-studio glimpse at “Norm’s world.”

Lori Jo Hoekstra will serve as showrunner alongside Macdonald. The official Netflix announcement also lists a familiar name in the creative team, with David Letterman on board as a “location scout.” Letterman was a guest last summer on “Norm Macdonald Live.”

Macdonald becomes the third comedian in the last month to ink a deal for a new Netflix talk show, following deals for “Daily Show” alums Hasan Minhaj and Michelle Wolf. “The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale” executive producer KP Anderson and Jash co-founder Daniel Kellison will also serve as EPs for “Norm Macdonald Has a Show.”
