The new series will air on ABC at 8 p.m. on Sunday’s during the fall as part of a three-hour block of programming that will start with the classic show “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and end with hit entrepreneur show, “Shark Tank.” ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke said of the deal, “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.” CBS TV Studios, which owns the rights to the format, is producing the show with Anvil 1893 Entertainment and Haddish’s She Ready Prods.
