Starz has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original comedy series Run the World created by Leigh Davenport.

The 8-episode first season will launch on Sunday, May 16 at 8:30/7:30c.

The comedy follows a group of smart, funny and vibrant thirty-something Black women - fiercely loyal best friends - who live, work and play in Harlem. As they strive for world domination, they each navigate career highs and lows, hookups and heartbreaks that cause them to re-evaluate who they are and where they are going. At its core, it's an authentic and unapologetic show about enviable friendship and not only surviving - but thriving together.

The comedy stars Amber Stevens West, Bresha Webb, Andrea Bordeaux, Corbin Reid, Stephen Bishop, Tosin Morohunfola, Erika Alexander, Nick Sagar and Jay Walker.

Davenport executive produces with showrunner Yvette Lee Bowser and director Millicent Shelton. Lionsgate Television and SisterLee Productions produce.
