Comedy 'Everything's Trash' Created by and Starring Phoebe Robinson Lands Series Order at Freeform

Freeform has today given a series order to the original comedy series Everything's Trash created by and starring Phoebe Robinson (2 Dope Queens). 

Inspired by Robinson's bestselling book Everything's Trash, But It's Okay, the comedy follows Phoebe, a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. Forced to grow up when her older brother Jayden emerges as a leading political candidate, she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood.

In addition to Robinson, the comedy stars Jordan Carlos, Toccarra Cash, Nneka Okafor and Moses Storm.

Jackée Harry and George Wallace guest starred in the pilot.

Robinson wrote the pilot, which was directed by Chioke Nassor. Robinson will executive produce with Jonathan Groff and Jose Acevedo. Nassor will serve as a co-executive producer. ABC Signature and Tiny Reparations will produce.

"Phoebe has one of the most unique and hilariously sharp voices in the business," said Tara Duncan, President, Freeform. "Everything's Trash is the perfect addition to the Freeform slate, bringing a distinct point of view to a woman navigating adulthood on her own terms."

"I feel like Whoopi Goldberg's choir at the end of Sister Act 2 when they won the competition! Overjoyed! Stunned! Extremely grateful!" added Robinson. "We're going to make something special that you won't want to miss."
