TBS orders Lena Waithe's Twenties, a semi-autobigraphical comedy pilot
Following her breakout Emmy-winning success on Master of None and Showtime's The Chi, Waithe will next try to bring to the small screen a semi-autobiographical comedy about a "queer black girl" named Hattie and her two straight girlfriends, who “spend most of their days talking sh*t and chasing their dreams." Long in gestation, Waithe first posted to YouTube a multi-part pilot presentation for the series back in 2013. “I always wanted to tell a story where a queer black woman was the protagonist and I’m so grateful to TBS for giving me a platform to tell this story," says Waithe, who will also write the single-camera comedy. Queer black characters have been the sidekick for long enough, it’s time for us to finally take the lead.”

Conan O'Brien says the Trump era is difficult for comedy : “It’s very hard to find a joke that’s more absurd than what’s actually happening”
“Comedians, usually in a normal era, are supposed to take these serious situations and find the comedy in them and stretch them a little bit,” said Conan in an interview Friday with CNN's Jake Tapper. “In the Trump era, we’re essentially dealing with — I mean, every day there is such a mother lode of, I don’t know how else to say it, surreal news.” Conan added: “It’s very hard to find a joke that’s more absurd than what’s actually happening. It’s really hard to take what’s happening right now and make it somehow more absurd than it really is. So, it’s a challenge for comics. People think it’s easy but it’s actually a little more difficult I think right now.”
