Oscar-winning actress and comedian Mo’Nique is getting her first comedy special for Netflix. The announcement comes shortly after she settled a race and sex discrimination lawsuit in which she accused the streaming giant of underpaying Black women. Legally named Monique Hicks, the 54-year-old is set to start filming later this year in Atlanta. She’s also teaming up with Netflix for a new faith-based film called The Deliverance.
