Haddish’s role in the ensemble film Girls Trip earned her mainstream fame. Prior to Girls Trip, Haddish also appeared in Keanu and Meet the Spartans, as well as a handful of television movies and series. Tuca & Bertie marks her first project as a voice actress, as well as her first credit as Executive Producer.
She is also working with HBO on her production company She Ready. Haddish named her company after her stand-up special Tiffany Haddish: She Ready! which aired on Showtime in late 2017.
In the tradition of Bojack’s anthropomorphized main character, Tuca and Bertie are bird-women in their 30s. The show is set to stream exclusively on Netflix, where Bojack Horseman, now in its fifth season, also premiered. Bojack was the first adult animated series produced by Netflix. Netflix has since also produced F is for Family and Castlevania.
