“Doctors, nurses, and grocery store clerks are fighting on the front lines, and the least the rest of us can do is stay home,” said Samantha Bee. “Even if that means my husband just became both my cameraman and makeup artist.”
The series has been on hiatus since March 12 due to the recent global pandemic, with the titular comic providing humor through her mini digital series Being at Home with Samantha Bee filmed at her house, and now she is partnering with producer and husband Jason Jones and her children to film new episodes from a socially distant six feet away from each other to bring the Emmy-winning series back to the air.
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee shines a spotlight on stories inside the Beltway and beyond, from sexual harassment in the media to the “boyfriend loophole,” and from global warming to child marriage in the United States. The series also travels the world to cover international stories, with segments from China, Jordan, Germany, Russia, Scotland, Mexico and Iraq.
