TCA: HBO Sets Amy Schumer Special, U2 Concert

HBO will air an Amy Schumer stand-up comedy special in October, one of several specials the network announced during its Television Critics Association tour session Thursday.

Amy Schumer: Live From Apollo, directed by Chris Rock, will debut Oct. 17, said HBO president Michael Lombardo during the session.

The network will also launch a Sept. 12 special featuring Will Ferrell dubbed Ferrell Takes The Field, in which the comedian visits five baseball fields during spring training. The special, in which Ferrell plays every position on baseball field for ten different teams in the same day, was dedicated to fight against cancer, said the network.

The network will also air a U2 documentary and concert performance over two consecutive weeks in November, Lombardo said.
