Niecy Nash may be getting a new gig.
According to reports, the Claws star just sold a pilot for her late-night series Naked with Niecy Nash to TNT. Nash will host and executive produce the series that would have her tackling issues of love, sex, romance and relationships with regular folks. If it’s picked up, it will be the first late-night series for the network that’s already home to Claws.
“I’m so excited to add my voice to the late-night landscape,” Niecy Nash said in a statement. “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!”
This show makes Niecy Nash the first late-night show host for TNT and she would be one of only two women to host a ate-night show on a major network along with Samantha Bee who hosts Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS. “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, EVP, Original Programming, TNT.
“Her improv skills, down to earth sense of humor and honesty on the subjects of love made her book, “It’s Hard to Fight Naked,” a best-seller. One sour note, despite the title, we hear Nash will be shooting the pilot fully-clothed.”
