Canadian comedy star Norm Macdonald is getting a talk show on Netflix.

The streaming service says it's ordered 10 episodes of "Norm Macdonald has a Show."

The program will feature one celebrity guest per episode, with the Quebec native as host and Adam Eget as his sidekick.

The two are also co-hosts of the podcast "Norm Macdonald Live."

Macdonald, a former "Saturday Night Live" cast member, will also be an executive producer and co-showrunner.

David Letterman, who also has a Netflix talk show, will be the location scout.

"Norm Macdonald has a Show" is produced under Macdonald's Anchor Spud Productions, along with Pygmy Wolf Productions in association with Lionsgate Television.

"The show will deliver great and unexpected conversation, jokes and a behind-the-scenes look at Norm's world," Netflix said Friday in a statement.
