The popular Indo-Canadian YouTube star who bagged a late night show on NBC, is going to continue for another year/season despite the travails entertainment companies are facing as a result of COVID-19.
Singh, who is the first Indian-origin host of a late night comedy show in North America, is also and executive producer of “A Little Late With Lilly Singh.”
“NBC’s late-night legacy continues to charge forward as “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” has been renewed for a second season,” the company announced in May 13 press release.
“Hosting my own late night show and interviewing guests from Malala Yousafzai to Snoop Dogg has been a fun ride for me. I learned so much during this first year of creating the show from scratch, and I’m excited that A Little Late will return for a second season on NBC,” Singhis quoted saying in the press release.
The series, which taped the entirety of its first season in the fourth quarter of 2019, currently airs in the U.S., Canada, India and around the world, is on Peacock, Hulu and the NBC App as well as YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
According to NBC, Singh’s show “leads all freshman programs in social engagements and easily ranks as the #1 most-viewed new broadcast series on YouTube,” since its premiere last September.
“Lilly is an incredible talent. ‘A Little Late’ has brought an expanding global audience to NBC and we look forward to another season of her unique showmanship and style,” said Katie Hockmeyer, EVP Late Night Programming at NBC Entertainment.
When she was a YouTube star of her own making, Singh did skits on family life portraying several characters in an Indian Sikh household. As a rising star on that social media outlet, she attracted well known actors such as Josh Rogen and James Franco.
At NBC, her first season included notable guests such as Mindy Kaling, Charlize Theron, Malala Yousafzai, Jessica Alba, Tracee Ellis Ross, Natalie Portman, America Ferrera, Ashley Graham, Justin Hartley, Meghan Trainor, Tony Shalhoub, Snoop Dogg, Terry Crews, Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, John Legend, RuPaul, Adam Devine, Tyra Banks and many more.
Singh has built a global audience of more than 36 million followers across her social media channels where she writes, produces and stars in comedic and inspirational videos, NBC noted.
As an actress, she appeared in the Emmy Award-nominated HBO film “Fahrenheit 451,” opposite Michael Shannon and Michael B. Jordan. She also appeared in the films “Bad Moms” and “Ice Age: Collision Course.”
Singh is the New York Times bestselling author of “How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life.” She has appeared on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Hollywood & Entertainment list; Fast Company’s Most Creative People list; and Time called her one of the most influential people on the Internet.
“A Little Late with Lilly Singh” is produced by Universal Television and Singh’s Unicorn Island Productions.
