"Getting On" is set in the women's extended-care facility of a Long Beach hospital and follows the lives of put-upon nurses and doctors as they struggle with the darkly comic realities of caring for the elderly in an overwhelmed healthcare system. Niecy co-stars with Laurie Metcalf ("Roseanne") and Alex Borstein ("MADTV").
In a recent promo shoot for the series, Niecy posed for photographer Rob Ector.

Looking good Niecy!
Watch the "Getting On" trailer....
In the latest issue of THR, the magazine rounded up a group of top actresses, 12 Years a Slave'sLupita Nyong'o, Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), Amy Adams (American Hustle, Her), Octavia Spencer (The Help, Murder, She Wrote) and Oprah Winfrey (The Butler) for the Actress Roundtable.
And everyone is freakin' stunning.
The hourlong conversation will air as a PBS special in December and features the actresses giving advice and talking about their ups and downs. Here a snippet that lead Oprah to tears.....
Whose career would you love to emulate?
NYONG'O: Hold on. (Takes a tissue.) When I was a little girl, the first time I thought I could be an actor was when I watched The Color Purple.
WINFREY: Oh my God, give me a tissue.
NYONG'O: I grew up in Kenya, and a lot of our programming was from all over the world, and we didn't see ourselves onscreen. It was very rare that you'd see people that look like me. And there was Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah and everything. It's so meaningful to be sitting here beside you.
WINFREY: It is equally meaningful for me.
