Niecy Nash Might Be Your New Favorite Talk Show Host
The new program will be executive produced by Nash and Sue Murphy. Murphy has served as the executive producer for both of Chelsea Handler’s shows on E! and Netflix—Chelsea Lately and Chelsea, respectively. On the show, Nash will discuss all things love, sex and relationships in efforts to relate to everyday people.
“I’m so excited to add my voice to the late-night landscape,” Nash said. “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!" It’s refreshing to see more women of color succeeding in the late show arena, since it is heavily saturated by men. We’re sure the actress-turned-host will add some excellent commentary to her topics of conversation.
Back in 2013, Nash shared these seldom words of advice for keeping your relationship happy on The Wendy Williams Show: “If you are in a relationship or married, I would say a BJ a day keeps the divorce attorney away! Oh wait a minute, my children might be watching, kids turn off the TV, you didn’t see that," she shared.
“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,” Sarah Aubrey, EVP, Original Programming for TNT said. “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, 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.”
