A monumental surprise awaits viewers of the Emmy® Award-winning "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" in the show's new main title sequence. Designed and directed by Erin Sarofsky, the highly stylized 20-second introduction presents Samantha the way the world increasingly sees her: as a curious giant in the cultural landscape.

Sarofsky's chosen approach combines a "punk rock poster" aesthetic with the gigantic Samantha idea. The specific scenarios set a colossal Samantha in familiar terrain, standing up for issues like human rights, legislature, leadership, representation and activism. Donning signature blazer and high heels while towering above American neighborhoods, cityscapes and monuments, she shakes hands (then "fan girls" a bit) with the Statue of Liberty; dismantles and consumes a section of the border wall; spies inside the White House and Capitol; battles a 5-headed hydra of pundits; and rallies a woman’s march… before defacing a poster of herself as she walks off the stage.

"Speaking for Erin and everyone at Sarofsky, I know this project checked all the boxes," says Executive Producer Steven Anderson. "Bringing in a project that allows everyone to be part of something bigger than ourselves – where we know our time and talent are going into evolving humanity for the better, and that our work will have a voice in a vital narrative – is almost too much to hope for."
