Tiffany Haddish has officially catapaulted her role in Girls Trip into the darling queen of film and television: Variety reports that the comedian has just signed a two-year first-look deal with HBO alongside her She Ready production company.
It's no surprise Haddish could be HBO's new star--she's had a breakout year that included a New York Film Critics' Circle Award for Best Supporting Actress, accompanied by a legendary acceptance speech at the ceremony. She also released a memoir in 2017, The Last Black Unicorn, which was named a New York Times bestseller.
In addition, Haddish's stand-up special "Tiffany Haddish: She Ready!" debuted on Showtime last year, and she's announced dates for a 2018 standup tour. She'll also star alongside Tracy Morgan in the upcoming TBS show The Last OG, premiering in April, and with Kevin Hart in the Universal feature Night School, out in September.
Other projects in the works include the films The Kitchen and The Temp, as well as Limited Partners at Paramount and the recently-wrapped The Oath. So it's safe to say Ms. Haddish is doing pretty well for herself.
