If Tiffany Haddish has done anything since her breakout success in ‘Girls Trip,’ it’s count checks. And the latest comes from Netflix!
Don’t tell Mo’Nique.
Full story below…
The streaming giant announced that the 38-year-old will serve as the lead voice and executive producer of new animated series ‘Tuca & Bertie.’
Commissioned for a 10-episode first season, the show is a comedy centered around the friendship between two 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building: Tuca, a cocky, care-free toucan (Haddish), and Bertie, an anxious, daydreaming songbird.
News of the gig comes in the wake of the comedienne’s mounting list of jobs this year; she’ll next be seen alongside Tracy Morgan on TBS sitcom ‘The Last O.G’ (which debuts April 3rd). Thereafter, she’ll be starring in the movie ‘Night School’ with Kevin Hart. That title has a September 28th arrival date. All of this in the wake of her inking a game-changing first-look deal with HBO for her She Ready production company.
Needless to say, busy times!
For ‘Tuca & Bertie,’ Haddish is joined by on the producing panel by ‘Bojack Horseman’ creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Lisa Hanawalt, Noel Bright, and Steven A. Cohen. [Source]
