Niecy Nash could be the next late-night talk show host!
TNT has ordered a pilot for a late-night show hosted by the Claws star, called Naked with Niecy Nash.
Sue Murphy, who executive produced and served as showrunner for Chelsea Handler's Netflix talk show, Chelsea!, would do the same for this pilot.
The show would see Nash "provide her comedic take and dispense advice on issues involving love, sex, romance and relationships as she interacts with everyday people."
This would be TNT's first late-night series.
“I’m so excited to add my voice to the late-night landscape. 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," said Nash.
“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. 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," said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming at TNT.
Nash's hit TNT show, Claws, was recently renewed for a third season.
