Chris Rock is reentering the late-night arena with a new FX series featuring W. Kamau Bell
Chris Rock, who used to have a late-night series on HBO, steps back into that arena with a new FX series that will feature comedian W. Kamau Bell.

Rock is to be executive producer for the "Untitled Chris Rock/W. Kamau Bell Late Night Show," which is scheduled to premiere this summer on the cable network with six installments. Plans call for the weekly half-hour series to feature Bell dissecting pop culture, race, politics, religion, the media and sex.

Bell is a founding member of the comedy group Laughter Against the Machine and has a popular comedy album, "Face Full of Flour."

FX executive vice president of original programming Nick Grad called Kamau "a tremendous young comedian who has a very smart and sharp take on life. Working with Chris will only bring out the best of his talents."
