It’s been a brutal summer for late-night shows, with five of them getting the ax in the last two months. Now TNT hopes to fill the void by ordering a new pilot for a late-night show featuring its Claws star, Niecy Nash.
Naked With Niecy Nash is “a decidedly unique show with a late-night feel” hosted and executive produced by Nash, star of the network’s hit prime-time dramedy series Claws
Sue Murphy (Chelsea Lately, Chelsea) is attached as executive producer and showrunner for the pilot.
Should the project get ordered to series, it would mark the first late-night series in TNT’s history. Nash would also be one of only two female late-night hosts on network TV, with the other being Samantha Bee, who hosts Full Frontal on fellow Turner network TBS.
