Niecy Nash is getting into the world of late-night television.

TNT announced Monday it ordered a pilot for a late-night talk show headlined by the Claws star.

The show will tentatively be titled Naked With Niecy Nash, and is described as “a tall glass of humor, advice and one-of-a-kind ‘Niecy-isms’ on all things love, sex, romance and relationships with everyday people.”

Nash said in a statement, “I’m so excited to add my voice to the late-night landscape. 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!”

Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming at TNT, added: “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.”

The pilot will be executive produced by TV veteran Sue Murphy, who served as EP of the Netflix talk show Chelsea and E!’s Chelsea Lately.

Nash currently leads the cast of the TNT comedy, Claws, which was renewed for a third season last month.

If the pilot gets picked up to series, Nash and Full Frontal host Samantha Bee would be the only two women with late-night shows.
