Wanda Sykes Developing Comedy for NickMom THR
Nickelodeon’s NickMom, the network’s nighttime comedy block targeted at moms, is working with Wanda Sykes on an untitled comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project joins a slate of new series in development for the programming block, including a “docu-comedy” and a reality competition, the story says. Sykes will work with her producing partner Page Hurwitz on the project.
Sykes and Hurwitz also have a deal through their Push It production company to bring back “Last Comic Standing” in the summer for NBC, the piece adds.
"Additionally, NickMom has ordered six episodes of a new hidden camera series, 'Undercover Cupid,' from producer Scott Stone," the report notes. "Hosted by 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?'s' Nyima Funk, the series follows unsuspecting single moms and dads who are surprised to meet three eligible dates picked by their kids as they live their lives."
