HBO taps 'Pod Save America' hosts for election specials


HBO has already brought one hit podcast (2 Dope Queens) to its slate of comedy specials this year, so it makes sense they'd look to another one for new content. Pod Save America will bring the hosts (and maybe the format) of its twice-weekly political podcast to the network with a new series of specials. Co-hosts will include Barack Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau, Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer and National Security spokesperson Tommy Vietor, as well as Jon Lovett, a producer for HBO's political drama, The Newsroom.
