Both Carmichael and Sanchez-Witzel are set up under overall deals at 20th TV.

Carmichael, meanwhile, is also an executive producer on the upcoming Fox comedy “Rel,” which stars his former “Carmichael Show” co-star Lil Rel Howery.

Bargatze is repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and Ginsburg Daniels. Shaki is repped by APA and Ginsburg Daniels. Carmichael is repped by UTA and APA for touring. Katcher is repped by UTA. Sanchez-Witzel is repped by UTA.
