ABC is planning a spinoff of The Rookie with Niecy Nash set to star. The new show will be introduced in a two-episode backdoor pilot during The Rookie’s current fourth season. While the mothership show focuses on the LAPD, the potential new show would focus on the FBI.
Niecy Nash may be adding talk show host to her résumé. CBS Television Distribution, the studio behind The Drew Barrymore Show, is nearing a daytime syndicated talk show set to be hosted by the Reno 911! and Claws actress. Sources say a presentation will be filmed in the near future for the potential series, which is being produced as a co-production between CTD and Ben Winston and James Corden’s Fulwell73.
