Development News - May 4, 2021

Amazon's Hot Pink and Freeform's Everything's Trash.

  • Jordan Carlos, Toccarra Cash, Nneka Okafor and Moses Storm have joined the cast of the comedy pilot starring and written by Phoebe Robinson. Carlos recurs on the upcoming second season of BET+'s First Wives Club. Cash has guest starred on TV Land's Younger and CBS' Blue Bloods. Okafor recurred on CBS' God Friended Me. Storm starred in NBC's one-season comedy Sunnyside.
  • Carlos will play Jayden, Phoebe's (Robinson) Blerd-y younger brother who was recently elected as a New York State representative. Their boundary-less relationship must change as Phoebe's wild yet entertaining behavior threatens to overshadow his Barack Obama-esque aspirations.
  • Cash will play Malika, Phoebe's savvy, smart and beautiful "Code Switch Queen" podcast producer. As Phoebe's work wife and ride or die friend, Malika tries to balance wanting Phoebe to grow up with also encouraging her to be messy because hey, the mess pays the bills and is funny AF.
  • Okafor will play Jessie, Phoebe's sister-in-law who's a former socialite-turned-feminist and college professor. She worries that she is the only one in her in-laws' family that has the strength to let Phoebe know that some of her shenanigans are dangerous to her husband's career and too influential on her daughter.
  • Storm will play Michael, Phoebe's BFF, roommate and friend since freshman year of college. He is a video game live streamer who is not ashamed to promote his TikTok whenever he can. Michael is more than happy to not grow up and will be the playful devil on Phoebe's shoulder.
  • Kym Whitley and Danny Garcia will co-star on the comedy pilot starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. Whitley previously starred for five seasons in Freeform's Young & Hungry and recently recurred on the first season of HBO Max's Made for Love. Garcia previously recurred on HBO's Divorce.
  • No details were immediately announced about the characters they will be playing.
