Pop has renewed its comedy series Nightcap two weeks prior to the show’s Nov. 16 premiere, the network said Thursday.
The series, which follows the exploits of a fictitious late night talk show and stars Ali Wentworth (In Living Color, Head Case), will return in 2017 with a 10-episode sophomore campaign, said network officials.
Wentworth serves as executive producer of the Lionsgate-distributed series along with Tom Brunelle and Brad Wollack.
“Nightcap is a fresh spin on the screwball workplace comedy in an original series that is distinctive and broadly appealing,” said Justin Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development for Pop in a statement. “We’re thrilled to continue working with Ali, who is an exceptional comedic talent, and with our co-parent company Lionsgate, an award-winning studio at the forefront of creating brand-defining content.”
