‘A Little Late With Lilly Singh’ To End On NBC, Star Segues To First-Look Deal With UTAS & Developing Comedy At Netflix With Kenya Barris

Singh herself has struck a first-look deal with Universal Television Alternative Studio with her Unicorn Island Productions banner. The first-look deal will see her developing unscripted projects with the unscripted division of Universal Studio Group, which is run by President Toby Gorman, who called her a "creative visionary".
A Little Late with Lilly Singh launched in September 2019, a replacement for Last Call with Carson Daly, and followed The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Meyers in the schedule. However, there was a large gap between seasons one and two due to the pandemic and Singh returned in January 2021 in a house rather than a studio.
Singh is represented by WME and Kyle Kuhns of XX Artists.” />
Today, I write to you from a similar place of deep gratitude to share some news,” she said. I have a desire to make longer form content telling underrepresented stories, which is difficult to execute on a nightly show.” “I’m going to focus on the slate of projects my company Unicorn Island Productions is developing, and we’re saying goodbye to A Little Late with Lilly Singh. I knew this show was about more than me, and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity and support. “Two years ago, I embarked on the wild journey of late night TV.
The show, which airs at 1:30am, will be coming to an end with its second season and the network is moving out of original programming for the slot that it previously called a “creative playground”.
She is also attached to star in a Netflix comedy series that she is developing with Kenya Barris. Singh will also produce alongside Polly Auritt of Unicorn Island Productions. She didn't disclose many details of this project, other to say that it is being produced by Barris' Khalabo Ink Society with writers/executive producers Nell Scovell and Diya Mishra.
The move is a blow to the diversity of late-night television as Singh is the only woman hosting a show on a broadcast network, but it is unsurprising given the ratings attached to a show that airs so late. The final episode will air on Thursday June 3.
NBC’s extremely late-night forays are coming to a close with the end of A Little Late With Lilly Singh.
"And to the Late with Lilly crew, I’m so proud of the progress we made in diversifying late night. That’s pretty incredible and it’s been a true honour." "This is just the beginning; I can't wait to share more with you but this is all I can tease for now. We've given 21 people their late night debut this season. I'm beyond grateful for your support past, present and future," she added.
