DL Hughley to Star in Sitcom Based on His Life

DL Hughley is developing a sitcom at Fox that is based on his life.

Hughley will star in the untitled comedy in addition to serving as executive producer, writer, and co-creator.

In the show, unfiltered, unapologetic, and opinionated radio host DL Hughley is free at work but under siege at home as he navigates life as a husband and father to an LGBTQ+ daughter, a son on the autism spectrum whose white girlfriend lives with them, and another daughter who can’t leave his credit card alone.

Hughley is best known for his work as a standup comedian but has starred in multiple television shows throughout his career. Most notably, he led the cast of the ABC (and later UPN) sitcom “The Hughleys” for four seasons. He also starred in shows like “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” and “Heartbeat.” He most recently hosted the TV One talk show “The D.L. Hughley Show” and has hosted multiple radio shows.
