Clear your calendars for May: then the women of Run the World will start doing what the show’s title implies.
The Starz comedy comes from creator Leigh Davenport (Wendy Williams: The Hot Topic) and showrunner Yvette Lee Bowser (Living Single). It features Bresha Webb (Marlon), Amber Stevens West (Carmichael Show), Corbin Reid (How To Get Away With Murder) and Andrea Bordeaux (NCIS: Los Angeles). The show will follow four professional women in their thirties who live on the show in Harlem and also happen to be best friends.
According to the official logline, West’s Whitney is “a perfectionist who almost always plays by the rules” while Webb’s Renee is a “soon-to-be-divorced diva with a seemingly prosperous career”. Bordeaux’s Ella is a “daring romantic” trying to figure out what she wants, and Reid’s Sondi is “a learned professional beginning to reevaluate both her career and personal priorities.”
Also starring on the show are Tonya Pinkins (All My Children), Stephen Bishop (Cheater), Erika Alexander (Living Single), Tosin Morohunfola (Black Lightning), Jay Walker (Grey’s Anatomy) and Nick Sagar (Queen of the South).
