BET throws its hat into the late-night TV ring with a series that spotlights the multitalented Robin Thede. The former head writer turned performer on Comedy Central's "The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore" hosts a fast-paced, no-prisoners-taken rundown of the week's headlines in politics and pop culture. Throw in biting social commentary, edgy sketches and stinging parodies, and Thede's fearless comedic style and wit come to the fore. In addition to being the first African-American woman to serve as head writer of a late-night comedy show, Thede's writing credits include "The Queen Latifah Show," "In the Flow With Affion Crockett" and "Real Husbands of Hollywood."
