LOS ANGELES – NBC is shaking up late-night TV, giving Carson Daly’s slot to a woman of colour who’s a star on YouTube.

The network said Thursday that a new show, titled A Little Late with Lilly Singh, will air at 1:35 a.m. EDT beginning in September.

Singh will be the only woman to host a daily late-night show on a major broadcast network.

NBC says her half-hour program will include in-studio interviews and pre-taped comedy sketches.

Singh calls the prospect of being an Indian-Canadian woman with her own late-night show “a dream come true.”

Her acting credits include HBO’s movie Fahrenheit 451 and Bad Moms.
