Sherman’s Showcase, a parody of a fictional variety show that’s part Solid Gold, part Soul Train and part Laugh-In, is now on Hulu.
The eight-episode series, which ran this summer on IFC, starts with host John Legend (as himself) presenting a bio of Showcase creator Sherman McDaniels (Bashir Salahuddin) and the events leading to the show’s fictional launch in 1972.
Subsequent episodes feature music and clips from Showcase’s faux 45-year history. High and low points include showbiz feuds, pop-star discoveries, behind-the-scenes hookups and the show’s robotic dancer, the Funk-A-Tron 2000.
Guest stars include Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, Common, Morris Day, Tiffany Haddish, Quincy Jones, Mike Judge, Ray Parker, Jr., Mario Van Peebles, Damon Wayans, Jr. and Marlon Wayans.
Sherman’s Showcase was created and written by Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle.
