Would you be interested in hearing Niecy Nash’s point of view on love, sex, romance, and relationships? If so, you’re going to love what TNT has in store for you.
The cable network has ordered a pilot for a late-night series with Niecy Nash as the host and executive producer. The pilot is currently titled ‘Naked with Niecy Nash’ and will mark the first ever late-night series for TNT should it be ordered to series.
“I’m so excited to add my voice to the late-night landscape,” said Nash. “Love is the thing we were created for but it’s also the place we struggle the most… until now! This is going to be a fun and sexy ride! TNT is the perfect partner for me in this endeavor! Adding an experienced and amazing executive producer and showrunner like Sue Murphy to this mix was the cherry on top.”
Niecy, who currently stars on TNT’s ‘Claws,’ will executive produce alongside pilot showrunner Sue Murphy. Sue’s resume includes executive producing and writing for the Netflix talk show “Chelsea,” and also served as an executive producer on E!’s “Chelsea Lately.”
“Niecy’s Award-nominated work in our hit series, ‘Claws,’ doesn’t even begin to cover the range of talent she can bring to television,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming at TNT. “Her improvisational skills, laugh-out-loud sense of humor, honesty, and thoughtfulness about the subjects of love and relationships made her book, ‘It’s Hard to Fight Naked,’ a best-seller, and make Sue Murphy and Niecy Nash the perfect team to bring this type of playful show to TNT. Despite the title, Niecy will be doing the pilot fully-clothed.”
