We lost Larry Wilmore’s voice earlier this year with the ending of The Nightly Show but thanks to a new deal with ABC; Wilmore could be back on TV.
Larry Wilmore has lined up a post-Nightly Show TV gig, signing a multi-year overall deal with ABC Studios. Wilmore was serving as executive producer/showrunner on the ABC Studios’ then-newly picked up ABC comedy series Black-ish when he landed the Comedy Central late-night show. Wilmore, who had joined Kenya Barris’ Black-ish at the pilot stage, stayed on for the first 13 episodes before departing for The Nightly Show, which he hosted for 20 months, until the show’s cancellation this past August. Under his ABC Studios deal, Wilmore will develop his own series and supervise other creators. There are no current plans for him to be involved in Black-ish though that could conceivably change if Barris and Vijal Patel’s new high-profile comedy project starring Felicity Huffman and Courtney B. Vance goes to series. “We’re thrilled to welcome Larry Wilmore back to ABC Studios,” said ABC Studios President Patrick Moran. “We worked closely with Larry while we were developing black-ish and are looking forward to what’s coming next from this incredibly talented writer/producer.”
