The funnywoman and Page Hurwitz’s Push It Productions will develop a comedy project for the network under a new comedy development pact, thewrap.com reports. NickMom, which airs nightly from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Nick Jr., is a block of programming geared toward mothers.
The new deal marks the latest feather in the cap of Push It Productions. The company, which was founded by Sykes and Hurwitz in 2012, is involved in various projects, including a production deal with NBC as well as production for OWN’s “Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious” and the new season of “Last Comic Standing” for NBC.
In addition to the Sykes project, NickMom has also approved six episodes of a hidden camera/dating series with the working title, “Undercover Cupid.” The show, hosted by Nyima Funk (“Whose Line Is It Anyway?”), centers around unsuspecting single moms and dads go about their day as they’re surprised by three eligible dates picked by their kids.
