Wise, who also stars in Fox’s forthcoming crime drama, “Shots Fired,” will play the iconic Nola Darling.
The series centers on Nola (Wise), a Brooklyn-based artist in her late 20s struggling to define herself and divide her time amongst her friends, her job and her three lovers: the cultured model Greer Childs; the protective investment banker Jamie Overstreet; and Da Original B-Boy Sneakerhead Mars Blackmon (Anthony Ramos), who still wears Jordans but now is a social-media phenomenon.
Wise’s Nola Darling is a sexually liberated, free spirited painter/mixed media artist. In Lee’s movie, the role was played by Tracy Camilla Johns.
Congrats to DeWanda! I look forward to watching the series.
