Looks like Tiffany Haddish and Netflix are building quite the relationship. Not only is she starring opposite fellow comedian Ali Wong for the upcoming animated series Tuca & Bertie, but she is also partnering with the streaming giant to produce a new stand-up comedy series.
The new series, Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready, will introduce a diverse group of six up-and-coming stand-up comedians doing half-hour specials. And if the title of the show rings a bell, that’s probably because it’s a reference to Haddish’s She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood, which debuted on Showtime shortly after Haddish starred in the 2017 film Girls Trip.
And this is definitely some hands-on production. Apparently Haddish hand-selected comedians she’s met along the way through her work in the stand-up scene, television and film. Those comics include Chaunté Wayans, April Macie, Flame Monroe, Marlo Williams, Tracey Ashley and Aida Rodriguez.
There’s no release date as of yet, but Tifanny, we’re ready.
