Aisha Tyler’s New York Times best-seller Self-Inflicted Wounds is coming to CBS. The Eye Network’s in-house production company CBS Television Studios has optioned the comedian’s book for a potential half-hour comedy series. Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation is a collection of essays about Tyler’s life and how she learned to embrace failure on her road to success. She is set to executive produce the sitcom while the search begins for writers to help adapt the book into a show.
Tyler is already a busy woman as the host of The CW’s Whose Line Is It Anyway?, co-host on CBS’s The Talk, and continues to voice Lana Kane (pictured) on FX’s animated comedy Archer (which was recently granted a two-season pick-up). It’s not usual that a comedic talent is given the leeway to appear on various shows across various networks, but she is not your usual talent.
The actress-comedian continues to tour as a stand-up comedian, hosts the award-winning Girl On Guy Podcast, and still manages to act in Ryan Murphy’s HBO drama pilot Open. The Aisha Tyler comedy empire continues to grow, one channel at a time.
