“Traci From Nightcap” will focus on the 22 minutes leading up to the nightly airing of the fictitious talk show “Night Cap with Jimmy.” It’s billed as having a mix of improv actors and celebrity guests. Wentworth plays a producer on the show and is an exec producer for Lionsgate TV along with Tom Brunelle, Brad Wollack, Troy Miller, Lydia Tenaglia, Chris Collins and Craig Shepherd.
“It’s been a lifelong dream to portray the true unsung hero of late night television, the talent booker! I apologize to all the Hollywood talent bookers who told me their celeb secrets off the record that I will now exploit for money,” Wentworth said.
“Traci” has a 10-episode order. It marks the cabler’s second scripted comedy, following the launch last year of “Schitt’s Creek.”
Wentworth is repped by ICM Partners and attorney Adam Kaller.
