"The Approval Matrix" is a talk show on SundanceTV that is hosted by comedian Neal Brennan ("Chappelle's Show," "Inside Amy Schumer," "The Mindy Project") and inspired by the celebrated pop culture roundup feature of the same name in the award-winning New York Magazine. Each episode is uniquely designed for those both impatient with and fascinated by the pop culture cacophony all around us.

Each week, Brennan and a rotating panel of celebrity guests will sort through, debate about, and tally up what's on everyone's radar. From the highbrow and the lowbrow to what's brilliant vs. despicable, no topic or commentary is off limits. The series will feature sketches and field pieces as well as one-on-one interviews between Neal and writer and producer Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation"), television host Jon Stewart ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart") and comedian Chris Rock ("Eat, Drink, Laugh").

The panelists include Jason Biggs ("Orange Is the New Black"), Hannibal Buress ("Broad City"), Whitney Cummings ("Whitney"), comedian Rob Delaney, Judah Friedlander ("30 Rock"), Willie Geist ("Today Show," "Morning Joe"), comedian Julie Klausner, Kurt Metzger ("Inside Amy Schumer"), Jim Norton ("The Opie & Anthony Show") and Donnell Rawlings ("Chappelle's Show").

"The Approval Matrix" is executive produced by Rory Albanese ("The Daily Show") and Emmy award winners Michael Hirschorn ("Best Week Ever") and Wendy Roth ("Fix My Family") of Ish Entertainment.
