Wanda Sykes and veteran producer Page Hurwitz joined forces in 2013 to form Push It Productions, a full-service production company dedicated to creating high quality comedy programming that promotes diversity in front of and behind the camera. Sykes and Hurwitz’ extensive combined experience and considerable relationships with comedians and writers gives the company the unique ability to develop original shows across all comedy genres – including sketch, talk/variety, game and competition, sitcoms, and stand up specials. Since its inception, the company has landed projects with Netflix, NBC, BET, Epix, OWN, Fox, and TruTV, including the award-winning Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious, the critically acclaimed Talk Show The Game Show, and the groundbreaking series Unprotected Sets on EPIX.
Push It's newest comedy special, 'Fortune Feimster: Sweet & Salty,' premiered on Netflix in January 2020. The company recently received its first Emmy nomination for the Netflix special 'Wanda Sykes: Not Normal.'
