Yvette Lee Bowser is at the helm of a new STARZ series that sounds a lot like our favorite 90s classic, Living Single. Bowser, who created the iconic series and is the co-showrunner of Dear White People, is behind Run The World, a 30-minute comedy that, “follows the story of a group of four black, vibrant, fiercely loyal best friends who work, live and play in Harlem as they strive for world domination.”

The network has cast two of its four leads, bringing in Bresha Webb (Marlon) and Amber Stevens West (The Carmichael Show) to the project.

According to Deadline, “West will play Whitney, the kind of woman who’s so perfect it’s driving her insane. She’s a type-A investment banker who never misses a SoulCycle class and is on track to marry the love of her life — if she can forget the other guy she just woke up with. Webb will play Renee, a walking firecracker of cynicism and in-your-face realness. She’s ready to go to war for her girls and her beliefs, and she’s not exactly concerned about collateral damage.”

Sounds…promising. In the meantime, take a look back at the Living Single 25th Anniversary Reunion that brought together Kim Fields, Kim Coles, John Henton and T.C. Carson in 2018.
