Lilly Singh, who goes by the stage name Superwoman has landed a rare chance to host a late night talk show on a major broadcast network. Lilly will replace Carson Daly as the host of NBC's late-night talk show. The show will be re-titled A Little Late with Lilly Singh, which will be launching September, making her the only woman to currently host a late night talk show on one of the big networks, reported variety.com.
In A Little Late, Lilly will be conducting in-studio interviews, as well as feature pre-taped comedy sketches and other signature elements.
"Lilly is truly a star and we're thrilled to welcome her to our NBC family. She is a multi-talented performer who will surely have a great rapport with not only all her guests but also with our devoted late-night audience. We can't wait to get started." said Doug Vaughan, executive vice president, special programmes and late night, NBC Entertainment.
"An Indian-Canadian woman with her own late night show? Now that is a dream come true. I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild," Lilly who will also serve as the executive producer of the show said.
On her latest role as a late night talk show host, actor Dwayne Johnson tweeted to Singh and said, "She's come a long way! Proud of you sis."
Singh was overwhelmed with all the messages that came her way. She shared a post on Twitter to thank everyone.
Lilly, a Canadian born Indian, took the internet by storm when she launched her popular book titled How To Be A Bawse.
