Tiffany Haddish Producing Stand-Up Comedy Series ‘Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready’ For Netflix

Tiffany Haddish is set to bring more diversity to Netflix’s growing realm of comedy.

The breakout star of Girls Trip and Night School has signed on to executive produce a series of stand-up specials for the streaming giant. The show, titled Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready, will feature six of Haddish’s favorite comics in half-hour specials.

“I am introducing six of my favorite comedians,” said Haddish. “In my eyes, they are superstars — the epitome of They Ready.”

Fellow comedian Wanda Sykes and Page Hurwitz, whose Push It Productions backed the 2014 revival of Last Comic Standing on NBC, will also executive produce.

The comedians featured in Haddish’s series are Chaunté Wayans, April Macie, Tracey Ashley, Aida Rodriguez, Flame Monroe and Marlo Williams. Haddish has a history with all six, having worked with them in comedy clubs or on TV. The show aims to bring more women, people of color and LGBTQ performers into the spotlight.
