Tiffany Haddish has found her next regular gig—she will host and be executive producer of ABC’s Kids Say the Darndest Things revival.
The reboot will have taped pieces from across the U.S. and in-studio segments featuring the Girls Trip actress interacting with precocious kids who have a whole lot to say.
“I’m excited to hear what kids have to say these days because I can’t understand what they are saying on social media,” said Haddish, according to Deadline. “They’re using too many abbreviations!”
TJB reports that ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke said in a statement, “When I was dreaming of stars I wanted to bring to ABC, Tiffany Haddish was top of my list. Tiffany starring in and producing this iconic series is everything I hoped for.”
A version of the series hosted by Bill Cosby aired from 1998-2000 on CBS.
The original Kids Say the Darndest Things was a segment on Art Linkletter’s 1945 House Party television series.
