When news first broke aboutYvette Lee Bowser, the creator of the 90s cult classic Living Single, creating a new comedy that followed the lives of four friends in New York, most of us immediately dubbed it a modern-day version of the hit show — and it looks like we were right. Run The World, which will star Bresha Webb(A Fall From Grace) and Amber Stevens West (The Carmichael Show) will center around a group of four best friends navigating their lives in Harlem. Sounds familiar, right?
Andrea Bordeaux (NCIS: Los Angeles) and Corbin Reid(How To Get Away With Murder)round out the foursome. So what’s the scoop on the characters coming to STARZ? According to reports, “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.
Reid is Sondi, “a righteous, feminist scholar who plays mommy to her older boyfriend’s 6-year-old daughter. He also happens to be her thesis adviser. She’s a Southern belle, so you know all the shade comes with a teaspoon of sugar.”
Bordeaux will play Ella, “a true romantic with an immense amount of wit and currently an equal amount of mess to her life. She’s the glue to this amazing group of friends. A writer searching for her literary career comeback, she’s a dreamer with gusto and slick humor like no other.”
Sounds interesting! While we’re sure Run The World will present a new take on the series we’ve all come to know and love, here’s a look back at the 25th cast reunion of Living Single TV One filmed in 2018.
