COMING OFF of a hugely successful 2017, Tiffany Haddish has entered the new year on a high, as has signed a first-look deal with HBO.

According to Variety, the two-year pact with Haddish and her She Ready production company comes on the heels of a breakout year for the comic, who won a New York Film Critics Circle best supporting actress award for her performance in 2017’s Girls Trip.

Her book The Last Black Unicorn, released last month by Gallery Books, was named a New York Times best seller and her new stand-up special Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! premiered on Showtime last year.

The star has also announced 2018 dates for her new stand-up tour and will next star opposite Tracy Morgan in TBS’ The Last OG, which premieres in April. She will also star alongside Kevin Hart in Universal’s feature film Night School, set to premiere in September.
