JESSICA WILLIAMS AND PHOEBE ROBINSON TO RETURN TO HBO WITH FOUR NEW "2 DOPE QUEENS" SPECIALS

2 DOPE QUEENS, featuring Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson, will return to HBO next year for a second series of four hour-long specials, it was announced today by Casey Bloys, president, HBO Programming.

Based on the hit comedy WNYC podcast of the same name, the show debuted on the network to critical acclaim last February with four shows directed by Tig Notaro and featuring special guests Uzo Aduba, Tituss Burgess, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jon Stewart.

Among the critical raves for the HBO show, produced by A24, IndieWire hailed them as "the face of comedy's future," while the Los Angeles Times noted, "The hosts are smart, sweet and centered enough that they can handle the lowest topics in a way that feels innocent and refreshing." Decider said, "Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson are undoubtedly two of the most interesting, compelling voices in the industry at the moment, and giving them an on-camera platform is the best move HBO could have made. 2 DOPE QUEENS is damn near perfect, with one small problem? - ?that there are only four hours for us to enjoy."

Launched in 2016, "2 Dope Queens" is a weekly standup and storytelling podcast that features Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson, along with their friends and favorite comedians, talking about sex, romance, race, hair journeys and living in New York.

Jessica Williams (@msjwilly) will soon be introduced to the wizarding world as Professor Eulalie "Lally" Hicks this November in J.K. Rowling's highly anticipated "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald." Williams recently wrapped production on Olivia Wilde's "Booksmart" opposite Jason Sudeikis and Lisa Kudrow and Patrick Brice's "Corporate Animals" opposite Demi Moore and Ed Helms. Previous credits include such films as the critically acclaimed "The Incredible Jessica James," "People Places Things," TV series "The Daily Show" and HBO's "Girls," and the Upright Citizens Brigade comedy troupe.

Phoebe Robinson (@dopequeenpheebs) is the author of the New York Times bestseller "You Can't Touch My Hair and Other Things I Still Have to Explain." She was also a staff writer for the final season of "Portlandia," appeared on the series "Search Party" and "Broad City," and hosts the critically-acclaimed WNYC Studios podcast "Sooo Many White Guys." Robinson made her film debut in the summer comedy "Ibiza" and will appear in the film "What Men Want" next year. Her sophomore book, "Everything's Trash, But It's Okay," will be published by Dutton on Oct. 16.

Season one of 2 DOPE QUEENS was executive produced by Phoebe Robinson, Jessica Williams, Amy Aniobi, Carrie Byalick, Chenoa Estrada, Jon Thoday, Richard Allen Turner and David Martin; executive producers also included Ravi Nandan and John Hodges.
