Tiffany Haddish To Host Kids Say The Darndest Things Revival
Tiffany Haddish has really been taking Hollywood by storm, and to prove it, she’s already got her next gig in the works. The comedian has just been announced as the new host for ABC’s revival of Kids Say the Darndest Things, a title previously held by Bill Cosby from 1998 to 2000.
Haddish is also set to serve as executive producer on the series, which will feature her chatting and with kids just like the original series. The show will be taped in front of a live studio audience and will feature both in-studio segments and bits taped all over the country.
“When I was dreaming of stars I wanted to bring to ABC, Tiffany Haddish was top of my list,” the network’s entertainment president Karey Burke told Variety. “Tiffany starring in and producing this iconic series is everything I hoped for.”
On the topic of some of the segments the show will offer for the upcoming reboot, ABC listed the following:
‘Kids Rule,’ in which kids explain to Tiffany the rules for everything from sportsmanship to dating; ‘Love Talk,’ where Tiffany seeks advice on her love life; ‘Best Carpool Ever,’ with Tiffany taking on carpool duty with a minivan full of kids; ‘Granny Tiff,’ when Tiffany, in prosthetics and dressed up as an older woman, receives technology advice from the kids; and more.”
Tiffany is looking forward to series herself, telling the publication how she’s excited to see what kids are saying these days since she has no idea what they’re saying online.
ABC is planning to launch the Kids Say the Darndest Things reboot this fall on Sundays at 8 p.m., which would be sandwiched between two of the network’s family-friendly staples: America’s Funniest Home Videos and Shark Tank.
