Niecy Nash has snagged another slot on TNT. Besides being on Claws alongside Karrueche, she will have her own late night talk show on the same network.
Naked with Niecy Nash is “a decidedly unique show with a late-night feel” where she will be giving advice about sex, love and relationships.
“I’m so excited to add my voice to the late-night landscape,” the 48-year-old said in a statement. “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! Adding an experienced and amazing executive producer and showrunner like Sue Murphy to this mix was the cherry on top.”
Sarah Aubrey, EVP of Original Programming at TNT expressed excitement about Nash’s new show, saying now the world will see another side of Nash once she hits late night TV.
“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,” Aubrey 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, and 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.”
Nash will also be executive producing the show while Sue Murphy is the show runner. The Los Angeles rep will be keeping busy, as Claws was also renewed for another season.
