Niecy Nash is poised to host her own TNT late-night show
Despite rumblings that there may be too much late-night TV following the cancelation of Netflix's Michelle Wolf and Joel McHale's Netflix shows, TNT has ordered a pilot for Naked With Niecy Nash. The Claws star is teaming with former Chelsea Lately executive producer Sue Murphy on the pilot that TNT says will be "a decidedly unique show with a late-night feel." “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.”
