Development News - 'Power' Star Naturi Naughton Joins ABC Drama Pilot 'Queens' Starring Eve

Development News - February 25, 2021

ABC's Queens.

  • Naturi Naughton will star opposite Eve in the drama pilot written by Zahir McGhee. She previously starred for six seasons in Starz's Power as well as the first season of its spinoff Power Book II: Ghost.
  • She will play Jill, aka Da Thrill, a founding member of the Nasty Bitches - the group she formed with her high school friends. Da Thrill lived fast, had rugged rhymes and a troubling drug habit. Today, Jill couldn't be more put together. She's a devout Catholic living a quiet life in Montana with her husband. But everything isn't as idyllic as it seems. She is haunted by past secrets. The Nasty Bitches reuniting allows Jill to escape her issues at home, but returning to her persona as Da Thrill conjures up difficult memories. But a friendship with a young rapper that she has almost nothing in common with will hilariously help Jill figure out the person she needs to be.
