Clap for her! Danai Gurira has inked a two-year overall deal with ABC Studios!

The award-winning “Walking Dead” actress will develop, write, and produce projects for the network across all platforms.

Jonnie Davis, president ofΒ ABC Studios gushed:

From Zimbabwe to Wakanda to Broadway, there is no one like Danai Gurira.

The scope of her talents and the breadth of her abilities are simply astonishing. We are over the moon that she has chosen to make ABC Studios her exclusive home.

Danai is currently serving as showrunner and executive producer of the HBO Max miniseries, “Americanah,” an adaptation of the bestselling novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

I’m super excited to see what else Danai Gurira has in store for us!

Congrats!
