The series is available on HBO and to stream on HBO Max.
This week features a one-on-one, in-studio interview with former Senior Counselor to President Trump, Kellyanne Conway. This week’s in-studio panel discussion will include award-winning journalist and co-founder of Katie Couric Media, Katie Couric; and founder and host of "Kentucky Sports Radio" and the author of “Mitch, Please!,” Matt Jones. The series is produced under COVID-19 guidelines without a studio audience.
Politico has hailed Maher as “a pugnacious debater and a healthy corrective to the claptrap of cable news,” while Variety noted, “There may not be a more eclectic guest list on all of television.”
Maher headlined his first special on the network in 1989 and has starred in 11 HBO solo specials to date.
The executive producers of REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER are Bill Maher, Sheila Griffiths, Marc Gurvitz, Dean Johnsen, Billy Martin; co-executive producer, Chris Kelly; producer, Matt Wood; director, Paul Casey.
