Development News - March 23, 2021

ABC's Black Don't Crack.

  • Sherri Shepherd will star in and produce the comedy pilot written by Regina Hicks. She served as a co-host on ABC's The View for seven seasons. She currently stars in Netflix's Mr. Iglesias, which has aired two seasons and is currently awaiting news on its future. She has also recurred on the first season of ABC's Call Your Mother.
  • She will play Angela Wright, a native New Yorker somewhere between 45 and death, but it's hard to tell because "black don't crack." She's a single mom who put aside her musical dreams to raise her son after her husband died. She's been holding it down alone for years, taking care of her family instead of herself. When she is confronted with a personal crisis, she reunites with her sorority sisters to recapture the passion, ambition and sisterhood of their college glory days.
