The former A Little Late host has booked a recurring role in the second season of Hulu’s Kat Dennings comedy Dollface.
In the series about female friendship, Singh will play Liv, a queer bar owner with a confident sense of humor, who explores both a relationship and a business venture with Stella (Shay Mitchell).

Singh was the only queer woman of color to host a late-night show on a broadcast network. NBC wrapped her series after two seasons in June as the network is moving away from original talk in the 1:30 a.m. slot. As a result, Singh also inked a fist-look deal with Universal Television Alternative Studio to develop unscripted fare for across the NBCUniversal portfolio. She also will next star in a Netflix comedy series that she is developing alongside Kenya Barris and writers Nell Scovell and Diya Mishra.
Singh’s acting credits include HBO’s Fahrenheit 451, Bad Moms and A Trip to Unicorn Island, which she also produced. She’s repped by WME, XX Artists and HJTH.
