Back in June, it was announced that Tiffany Haddish's She Ready banner and Hearst Media Production Group entered a development deal. Through the deal, the companies would produce two unscripted series. One would center on psychotherapist, author and lecturer Elliott Connie. The other would investigate successful women who have engaged in romantic, long-term relationships with homeless men.
Prior to the ongoing strikes in Hollywood, Haddish spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the process of the show. She told the outlet on the red carpet of The After Party season two premiere that the two companies are in the process of moving forward with the shows.
The homeless dating show, however, was one that she was a bit more passionate about.
“I experienced homelessness myself and found that there was a stigma on it that I don’t think should be there,” the Haunted Mansion Star said. “Everyone deserves to be loved. Everyone deserves to have someone supporting them and caring for them — not necessarily carrying them all the way. It’s really important for people to make sure that they know that because it’s really hard to be homeless. So many people are isolated and living on the streets alone.”
The ongoing strikes have put Hollywood on an immediate and indefinite halt. The majority of productions will not be moving forward until the strikes are over. Recently, the 75th annual Primetime Emmys have been pushed back four months from September to January due to the strikes.
