It’s not the ideal start to a buzzy show about ambitious black women.

We’re told that the new Amazon show from “Girls Trip” creator Tracy Oliver — and backed by Amy Poehler — has already hit a most unfortunate snag, after a makeup artist was fired for allegedly using the N-word repeatedly on set, in front of one of the show’s lead actresses. (We know the name of the actress, but we aren’t going to print it.)

We’re told the makeup artist was quoting rap lyrics, but was “fired on the spot.”

Deadline described the show, which is currently known as the “Untitled Tracy Adams Project,” as a “comedy following the lives of four black women – friends from their college days at NYU – as they navigate sex, relationships and chasing their dreams.”

It’s produced by Poehler’s Paper Kites firm.

Reps for Poehler and the actress in question didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment.
