Tiffany Haddish is set to executive produce a new stand-up comedy series for Netflix.
The show — Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready — will feature six up-and-coming stand-up comedians doing half-hour specials, according to Variety. Haddish curated the group herself, and knows each comic personally from her years on the comedy circuit.
“I am introducing six of my favorite comedians – in my eyes, they are superstars,” Haddish said in a statement about the comedians, adding that they are “the epitome of They Ready.”
Comedians Chaunté Wayans, April Macie, Tracey Ashley, Aida Rodriguez, Flame Monroe, and Marlo Williams are all set to star in the series, while comedian Wanda Sykes and writer-producer Page Hurwitz will serve as producers.
The show’s “They Ready” catchphrase pays homage to Haddish’s August 2017 comedy special on Showtime, She Ready! From the Hood to Hollywood. The special premiered shortly after the performer starred in the popular film, Girls Trip.
