‘Living Single’ Type Of New Show Named ‘Run The World’ Casts Two With Bresha Webb, Amber Stevens West

Comedy News

Amber Stevens West and Bresha Webb have been cast as two of the four leads of a new Starz pilot coming from Dear White People showrunner and Living Single creator, Yvette Lee Bowser.

The Carmichael Show and Marlon stars will be part of a new half-hour comedy pilot called Run the World. Bowser, via her production company SisterLee Productions, is bringing the show to Starz as executive producer along with Leigh Davenport, writer of Boomerang, who shares executive producer credit and is the creator and writer of the show. Lionsgate TV, where Bowser has an overall deal, is also behind the project. Millicent Shelton will direct the pilot.

The pilot will revolve around a group of four dedicated best friends who tackle life and their dreams in Harlem. Webb will play Renee, described as “a walking firecracker of cynicism and in-your-face realness.” Renee is a character who will “go to war for her girls and beliefs, and she’s not exactly concerned about collateral damage.” West’s character Whitney is a perfectionist “type-A investment banker who never misses a SoulCycle class.” She is set to get married, however, she’s also seeing someone else.

We should expect the other two leads to be cast soon.
