CBS orders Pickled, a primetime celebrity pickleball special from Stephen Colbert and Funny or Die

Colbert’s Spartina Productions, CBS Studios and Funny or Die are behind the two-hour special, which promises “competitive” and “celebrity-packed” pickleball teams competing for the “Golden Gherkin.” CBS will announce the exact format, celebrity competitors and premiere date at a later date. “I love hosting The Late Show, but at the end of the day – and I’m specifically talking about the hours between 8 and 10 pm Eastern – I see Pickled as a chance to bring lots of different people together for something playful and unpredictable,” said Colbert in a statement.
