D.L. Hughley to Star in a Series About His Life


DL Hughley


Monty Python used to like to open their sketches with the phrase "and now for something completely different." Well this news isn't something different, but instead something we've seen a few times over. 

D.L. Hughley has signed on to co-create and star in a project for FX based on his life. Hughley will play himself in an autobiographical series, as a comedian, radio host and family man. This is familiar for a couple of reasons: first, because Hughley has played himself before, in the scripted series 'The Hughleys' (not to mention in several unscripted shows). But also, because FX is the home of the smash-hit comedy series 'Louie,' where comedian Louis C.K. stars in an autobiographical look at his life. Seems as though FX is hoping for the formula to pay off a second time with D.L.

The project is yet untitled, but it's a safe bet that D.L. Hughley's name will feature prominently. Hughley won a Peabody Award earlier this year for 'D.L. Hughley: The Endangered List,' a program wherein comedians comically petition to get the black man included on the endangered species list. Hughley had a New York City radio show a couple of years ago and recently signed on to host a nationally-syndicated drive show in the evening. His FX show would feature Hughly as a show host, father of three, and husband of an impressive twenty-five year marriage. Hughley has signed on to co-write the script, which will only be the latest of a dozen different projects he's written over his lengthy career. 

How would you like to see Hughley's FX series to differ from 'The Hughleys'? How should it differ from 'Louie'?
