Looks like Niecy Nash's televised wedding on the TLC network, Niecy Nash’s Wedding Bash, paid off royaly for her. The actress/comedienne just landed an 8 episode docu-series that will chronicle Nash and her new husband Jay Tucker’s life together as a blended family with Niecy’s three teenage children and her mother along with Jay’s son according to Deadline.
The two-hour wedding special drew almost 5 million viewers on TLC in June and, of course, those numbers have spawned the new docu-series. It will premiere in early 2012.
"This series will reveal the journey of bringing a blended family together, and Niecy brings her heartfelt and often hysterical views of being a hard-working mom, wife and daughter," TLC’s GM Amy Winter said.
"There’s a lot of love in our house, but also a lot of mayhem and foolishness – all the kids are acting crazy, I’m busier than ever, and Jay’s never raised girls before,” Nash said. “We hope our fans welcome us into their homes… we need the room!”
That's not all...She was recently cast as Cedric The Entertainer's wife in a Hot In Cleveland comedy spinoff show on the TV Land network. The girl is busy!
