Tiffany Haddish is getting her own animated series on Netflix from the creators of BoJack Horseman. As the comedian herself would say, "She ready!"

Lisa Hanawalt, who produces BoJack and voices the character of Becca, created Tuca & Bertie, a new 10-episode comedy about a pair of 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment complex. Haddish will voice Tuca, described as a "cocky-care-free toucan," while Bertie (yet to be cast) is "an anxious, daydreaming songbird."

BoJack creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg will executive-produce Tuca & Bertie with Hanawalt, Haddish, and two more from team BoJack, Noel Bright and Steven A. Cohen.

As shown in the first look image, Shadowmachine, the animation studio behind BoJack, is also working on Tuca & Bertie.

People can't get enough of Haddish since she helped Girls Trip become one of the highest-grossing films at the summer box office, and Netflix is wise to give her more opportunities to shine.

The newly minted Groupon spokesperson will be a presenter at the Oscars on March 4 after announcing the nominees in January. Fresh from giving Drunk History one of its best episodes, Haddish will next be seen in Tracy Morgan's television return The Last O.G. And that's just grasping the surface of the self-dubbed Last Unicorn's rise to the top.

BoJack, meanwhile, will return for a fifth season on Netflix.
