The Incredible Jessica Williams is living up to her name.

Jessica is quite the hot commodity these days. After winning over audiences on her breakout role as a Daily Show correspondent, creating a pretty dope podcast with Broad City‘s Phoebe Robinson and starring in her Netflix debut The Incredible Jessica James, the rising starlet has found a new home at Showtime. According to Deadline, Jessica will write and star in a Jim Strouse-directed comedy on the cable network. Strouse previously directed her Netflix romcom, which garnered well-received reviews, so the duo thought to give it another try. “Williams and Strouse will write and executive produce the comedy, which tells the story of an African American aspiring science fiction writer (Williams) who comes of age in Brooklyn,” confirmed Deadline.

Additionally, her 2 Dope Queens podcast is set to air on HBO as four hour-long specials. “We are so stoked to be partnering with HBO for these specials. Excited to add a couple more Khaleesis to the network!” she shared in a statement.

We see you, Jess! Keep shining! Stay tuned for more updates to come.
