London Hughes has two TV shows in the pipeline

Including one based on her stand-up breakthrough. To Catch A D*ck

London Hughes is working on two TV series with Kevin Hart’s production company – including a spin-off from her breakthough stand-up show, To Catch A D*ck.

The comic’s first project, Good Sense of Humor, is currently in development for Netflix. She will write, star in and produce the show, although other details are scant.

Meanwhile, Jezebels will be a spin-off of from To Catch A D*ck, which charted her exploits on the dating scene. It is in development with Hart’s production company Heartbeat.

The original show earned her a nomination for the 2019 Edinburgh Comedy Awards, making her the first black British woman to make the shortlists, and was released on Netflix as her debut comedy special in December 2020, executive produced by Hart.

She is currently working on her next stand-up show, To Catch A Bouquet, which she tried out in Los Angeles – where she now lives – last month.

Hughes will next be seen in Group Therapy, a documentary in which comedians discuss how mental health relates to their professional life which premiered at the Tribeca Festival in New York last week. Made by Hartbeat, it also features Tig Notaro, Nicole Byer, Mike Birbiglia, Gary Gulman and Atsuko Okatsuka. 

As previously disclosed, Hughes is also set to star in the comedy movie Hot Mess, currently in development and based on her own idea.

News of her new TV projects came as it was announced that Hughes had signed to talent management company Artists First, which has offices in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.  and whose other clients include Martin Lawrence, Awkwafina, Will Arnett and Kate McKinnon. It is also a production company whose sows include  Black-ish, and Reno 911!.

Hughes continues to be represented by UTA and Curtis Brown Group in the UK.
