Netflix has announced that Oct. 28 is the premiere date for "Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj," the weekly series hosted by stand-up comedian and actor Hasan Minhaj. With this Netflix deal, which was announced in March, Minhaj became the first person of Indian heritage to host a nonfiction comedy show on a U.S. network. Netflix has already ordered an unprecedented 32 episodes of the series. Minhaj will executive produce the show, along with Jim Margolis, Prashanth Venkataramanujam, Michelle Caputo, Shannon Hartman and Jennie Church-Cooper.

According to a Netflix announcement, "Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj" will "explore the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity. Each week, Minhaj will bring his unique comedic voice and storytelling skill to investigate the larger trends shaping our fragmented world."

Minhaj was a correspondent on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" from 2014 to 2018. He gained even more notoriety when he hosted the 2017 White House Correspondents Dinner, and his 2017 Netflix special "Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King" earned him a 2018 Peabody Award. Minhaj and his sketch comedy quartet, Goatface, are doing a one-hour Comedy Central special later this year. He also has supporting roles in the 2018 comedy films "Most Likely to Murder" and "The Spy Who Dumped Me." Minhaj kicks off a North American tour on Aug. 11 in Los Angeles.
