Tiffany Haddish is using her connections at Netflix to shine a light on six women comedians worth our attention.

The Girls Trip actress is producing and hosting a new comedy series for the streaming giant titled Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready! Haddish will executive produce the series alongside fellow stand-up Wanda Sykes and comedy producer Page Hurwitz, Deadline reports.

Featured comics include Chaunté Wayans (50 Shades of Black), April Macie (Snoop Dogg’s Bad Girls of Comedy), Tracey Ashley (The Last O.G.), Aida Rodriguez (Last Comic Standing), Flame Monroe (Def Comedy Jam) and Marlo Williams (Comicview). Haddish believes the industry often excludes women, people of color and LGBTQ performers. She hopes to help move things in a more diverse direction with the series.

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

Haddish will also be debuting her own one-hour Netflix comedy special later this year.

“Tiffany Haddish is a force,” said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix’s vice president of original documentary and comedy. “Hilariously funny, brash and self-effacing, she’s an incredible artist who is winning over audiences while breaking barriers, and we are tremendously proud that she will showcase her formidable talent on Netflix.”
