*Actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish has inked a two-year, first-look deal with HBO, and the announcement follows reports that she has been named the new spokesperson for Groupon.

Variety reports that her deal with HBO means the premiere cabler “will get first dibs on any show concepts Haddish comes up with.” Speculation is already stirring about who Haddish might bring along to feature in a new project.

As she told the NYFCC in her awards speech, “It’s been so many years when nobody saw me. You know, when you’re a little kid, going through the system, doing all this—you wonder, ‘Does anyone even know I’m alive?’”

Adding, “There’s so many people like me that you guys don’t know about,” Haddish added. “But they coming, ’cause I’ll keep the fucking door open.”
