Ego Nwodim Joins New Peacock Mockumentary Series Mr. Throwback 

NBCUniversal is doubling down on Ego Nwodim.

The current SNL cast member has joined the cast of Peacock’s upcoming comedy series Mr. Throwback

The single-camera mockumentary will follow a sports memorabilia dealer hoping to reunite with his former teammate from sixth grade, NBA star Steph Curry. Nwodim will take on the role of Kimberly, another childhood friend who is now Curry’s manager and business partner. Nwodim will star alongside Adam Pally and the real Steph Curry.

The show comes from David Caspe, the creator of Happy Endings. Six episodes were ordered, all to be directed by David Wain. 

Her role on the show isn’t expected to interfere with her duties on SNL. Caspe has some experience working around the late-night sketch show’s schedule having previously created Kenan Thompson’s NBC sitcom Kenan

Since joining SNL in 2018, Nwodim has developed a series of popular recurring characters, including “Lisa from Temecula,” “Rich Auntie with No Kids,” and an impression of Dionne Warwick.

She also voices a role in the animated Good Times adaptation and appeared in the recent film Players, both for Netflix.
