No, this is not about Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen. It’s about Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson. You’ve probably heard of the hit podcast 2 Dope Queens, where the two comedians rehash their lives, current events and pop culture.


HBO announced Thursday that the duo has partnered with the network for four hourlong specials.

2 Dope Queens and HBO going half on a TV baby? A dream come true! The work wife and I are beyond thrilled that the formula we’ve perfected over the past four seasons of doing the podcast (Ignorance x Cocoa Butter + Comedic Honesty) is being brought to this network,” said Robinson.

Robinson is a television writer and stand-up comedian. She is also the author of the New York Times best-selling book You Can’t Touch My Hair (and Other Things I Still Have to Explain).

Williams stars in the acclaimed Netflix movie The Incredible Jesse James. She also served as a correspondent on The Daily Show 2012-2016 before she left after signing her own development deal with Viacom.

Williams said: “We are so stoked to be partnering with HBO for these specials. Excited to add a couple more Khaleesis to the network!”

Well, now I guess you can’t cancel your HBO subscription after the Game of Thrones finale.

I’ve listened to this podcast from the beginning and I enjoy it. I was about to type out a few aspects of it that I wish were different but I realized that wouldn’t be constructive. Instead I will say I am glad they exist for the things I do like about them.
