The hit comedy podcast 2 Dope Queens, featuring Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson is coming to television screens via HBO in 2018. Williams, who previously starred and produced in Netflix’s The Incredible Jessica James, and Robinson, who starred in Broad City, are no strangers to the big screen.
In the trailer, there is already a sense of what kind of hilarity is to come as Williams and Robinson give the viewers a sneak peak. “What an amazing idea to have your own special on HBO,” Robinson says in the teaser, which Williams followed up with, “This is what our ancestors fought for.”
The 2 Dope Queens special will be taped in front of a live audience in Brooklyn’s King Theatre and will include four hour-long episodes. Topics of discussion will include “New York” with Jon Stewart, “Hair” with Sarah Jessica Parker, “Hot Peen” with Tituss Burgess, and “Black Nerds” (a.k.a. “Blerds”) with Uzo Aduba.
2 Dope Queens debuts Friday, Feb. 2 at 11:30 p.m. on HBO. Watch the trailer up top.
