Development News - Hina Abdullah and Punam Patel to Star in Freeform Comedy Pilot 'Brown Girls'

Development News - November 17, 2016

Freeform's Brown Girls.

  • Hina Abdullah (The Last Ship) and Punam Patel (Kevin From Work) will play the lead roles on the comedy pilot written by Shilpi Roy. The project centers on Rimmi (Abdullah), a fashion-forward young woman who is trying hard to ignore her heritage and launch her own makeup vlog. Told by her mother that she needs to connect with family friend Devi (Patel), a traditional young woman who has just emigrated to L.A. from India, Rimmi is put off by someone who seems to be her complete opposite. Devi, who is confident yet content with her traditional values, reaches out to Rimmi upon arriving in town and is not impressed with Rimmi's quest for Internet fame.
