Sarah Silverman is bringing her raunch-infused, irreverent brand of humor to HBO.

The "Sarah Silverman Program" comedian is preparing to headline her first special for the premium cable channel, the network said Monday. "Sarah Silverman" We Are Miracles" will tape in Los Angeles in May, with a premiere planned for the fall.

The special will be presented by HBO in association with Funny or Die.
