Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson are bringing '2 Dope Queens' to HBO for four hour-long specials

The uber popular podcast from Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson, 2 Dope Queens, is coming to HBO next year in the form of not one, but four hour-long live specials.

“Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson prove you can be hilarious and socially conscious at the same time,” said Bloys. “We’re looking forward to bringing these very funny, talented women and their unique points of view to the HBO audience,” said HBO president of programming Casey Bloys.

“2 Dope Queens and HBO going half on a TV baby? A dream come true! The work wife and I are beyond thrilled that the formula we’ve perfected over the past four seasons of doing the podcast (Ignorance x Cocoa Butter + Comedic Honesty) is being brought to this network,” says Robinson.

Williams said: “We are so stoked to be partnering with HBO for these specials. Excited to add a couple more Khaleesis to the network!”

The podcast was started in 2016.

Williams just recently starred in the critically-acclaimed Sundance favorite and Netflix film, The Incredible Jessica James. Robinson has also been tapped in a Netflix project, a comedy film titled Ibiza.
