Oscar and Golden Globe-winning actress and comedian Mo’Nique announced her first Netflix original comedy special for the streamer. In a video posted to Netflix’s Twitter account and the Strong Black Lead initiative account, Mo’Nique said that she is “so excited to share that I’ll be shooting my first Netflix comedy special.” The special is set to film later this year in Atlanta, with additional details to be announced in the coming months.
News of the comedy special comes after a very public, years-long standoff between Mo’Nique and Netflix. Last month, Mo’Nique (legal name is Monique Hicks) and the streaming service agreed to dismiss the lawsuit she brought against them back in November 2019, claiming racial and gender discrimination. No further details of the settlement were disclosed.
The the 54-year-old also reminded viewers that she will be reuniting with friend and director Lee Daniels for the Netflix film ‘The Deliverance’. She said: “You won’t wanna miss either of them, so y’all stay tuned. Thank y’all my sweet babies. I love us for real.” Mo’Nique recently reconnected with Daniels, whom she has been at odds with for nearly 13 years since they worked together in 2009 on the Academy Award-winning film Precious. The comedian claimed she was “blackballed” from Hollywood, naming Daniels as one of the culprits, despite winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2010 for her critically acclaimed performance in Precious as the titular character’s abusive mother, Mary.
