Each episode is a half-hour and executive produced by Haddish, Wanda Sykes and Page Hurwitz.

In addition to Rodriguez, who was a contestant on the eighth season of Last Comic Standingthe special will include sets by Chaunté Wayans(50 Shades of Black), April Macie(Snoop Dogg’s Bad Girls of Comedy), Tracey Ashley (The Last O.G.)Flame Monroe (Def Comedy Jam) and Marlo Williams (Comicview).

Haddish shares a history with each of them after working together on the stand-up scene or in television. She believes that the industry often excludes women, people of color, and LGBTQ performers and as such wants to put this diverse group of comedians in the spotlight.

It’s Haddish’s latest project for the SVOD service, having already set up her own comedy special and leant her voice to forthcoming series Tuca & Bertie from the BoJack Horseman team.

Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Readywill be produced by Push It Productions, the company run by Sykes and Hurwitz, which is producing Sykes’ own Netflix special, and Haddish executive produces through She Ready Productions.

Haddish said, “I am introducing six of my favorite comedians – in my eyes, they are superstars. The epitome of They Ready.”
