Hughes, who has appeared on Comedy Central UK and Fleabag, is co-creating with Wilmore and will star in the single-camera comedy about a woman who, "after getting dumped by her boyfriend in England, comes to America to find success, herself and maybe even love." Earlier this year, Hughes became the first black British woman in 39 years to be nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award for her 2019 show To Catch a D*ck. “This show is honestly something I’ve wanted since I was 8 years old, and I can’t believe I get to make it for NBC with the absolute legend that is Larry Wilmore! Excited is an understatement! I’m this close to peeing myself!,” Hughes said. As Deadline notes, "Wilmore previously partnered with another rising black writer-actress, Issa Rae, to create a single-camera series headlined by her and informed by her personal experiences. That comedy, Insecure, is heading into its fourth season on HBO."
