Robin Thede has been named head writer of Comedy Central’s much-anticipated “The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore,” the network’s new hope to stand with its long running “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and continue what has become a cultural institution in latenight.
Thede has been head writer on “The Queen Latifah Show,” a creator of videos for FunnyorDie and an actress. She will be responsible for much of the tone of the new program, which will inject an African-American host and perspective into a daypart that has largely been dominated by Caucasian hosts. Comedy Central said the new program would “feature a diverse panel of voices currently underrepresented in comedy and television,” but declined to reveal more.
Thede has written for multiple series including “The Queen Latifah Show” and “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” as well as numerous award shows including the Bet Awards and the NAACP Image Awards.
