Queen Latifah prepping new travel series featuring female comedians

 

Queen Latifah is prepping a new project that sounds pretty good to us.

According to Variety, she has teamed up with Electus to create a travel docuseries that will feature female comedians traveling with their famous friends. As of now, the title for the series is Friends In Strange Places. 

“There are so many funny, brilliant women in this industry, and – with plenty of successful male-driven travel series out there – a comedic docu-series about sisterhood and adventure is just the type of uncharted territory we want to plant our flag in,” Latifah said. “I’m so excited to develop a show that not only elevates and highlights female comedians, but also brings them together for an amazing time that will also be a trip for viewers.”

“This creative provides a hilarious, unique and personal look at the power of female friendships, and we can’t imagine a more ideal partner, and consummate dynamo, than Queen Latifah and her incredible team at Flavor Unit,” Grant and Buckley said. “We’re excited to take out to the marketplace a project that brings such a fresh perspective.”
