Pop Renews ‘Nightcap’ Comedy Series Prior To Show’s Debut

Pop has renewed its comedy series Nightcap two weeks prior to the show’s Nov. 16 premiere, the network said Thursday.

The series, which follows the exploits of a fictitious late night talk show and stars Ali Wentworth (In Living Color, Head Case), will return in 2017 with a 10-episode sophomore campaign, said network officials.

 Wentworth serves as executive producer of the Lionsgate-distributed series along with Tom Brunelle and Brad Wollack.

“Nightcap is a fresh spin on the screwball workplace comedy in an original series that is distinctive and broadly appealing,” said Justin Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development for Pop in a statement. “We’re thrilled to continue working with Ali, who is an exceptional comedic talent, and with our co-parent company Lionsgate, an award-winning studio at the forefront of creating brand-defining content.”
