*Wanda Sykes has crammed two more projects into her TV schedule.
The Emmy winner has joined ABC’s “Black-ish” in a recurring role, and is also set for an arc on Showtime’s “House of Lies,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
On “Black-ish,” the comedienne will play Daphne Lido, the ex-wife of Stevens & Lido’s founding partner. In the divorce, she gains control of half of the company that Dre (Anthony Anderson) works for and hopes to start inserting herself into company business. She’ll make her debut in early December.
Sykes joins previously announced guest stars including Tyra Banks, Zendaya and Amber Rose.
On “House of Lies,” Sykes will appear in least three episodes as Wanda, a love interest for Jeremiah (Glynn Turman) who becomes a much-needed confidante for Marty (Don Cheadle) as he looks to ascend from management mogul to global power player.
