This is Tiffany Haddish’s year!  From her breakout role in the film Girls Trip to landing her own comedy special on Netflix, and then making history as the first black female stand up comedian to host Saturday Night Live, Haddish has become a household name.

As if this year couldn’t get any better for the rising comedienne, Haddish has lined up two new studio films that will certainly cement her role in Hollywood as a leading lady.

The first film is New Line’s The Kitchen, according to Variety, a drama based on a cult comic-book series about a group of Irish Mafia wives in 1970s New York. When the F.B.I. arrests some of their husbands, the women end up taking over the business, putting their own violent twist on things. The film will be directed by Straight Outta Compton writer Andrea Berloff, and will be produced by Michael De Luca.

Haddish’s next film is The Temp, a Universal film that will reunite her with Girls Trip power producer Will Packer. Few details are known about the plot of this film, which will be written by Dana Fox (What Happens in Vegas, How to Be Single).

Haddish has become one of the most sought-after comedic talents in television and film. She recently starred on The Carmichael Show, as well as the Universal Pictures hit film Girls Trip (mentioned above), alongside Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall. Up next, she will be starring alongside Tracy Morgan in his upcoming comedy series The Last OG, created and executive-produced by Tracy Morgan and Jordan Peele.

Her other film credits include Meet the Spartans,Keanu, Racing for Time, and The Janky Promoters. Her television credits include recurring roles on If Loving You Is Wrong,Real Husbands of Hollywood, and New Girl.  She was an early standout since first appearing on Def Comedy Jam, Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes? and Comedy Central’s Reality Bites, and will soon be joining Kevin Hart and Yvonne Orji in the upcoming comedy Night School.

We are beyond excited to see Haddish rise, and we can’t wait to see what’s next!
