Rev. Run & Justine Simmons Land Netflix Series
Congratulations to Rev. Run and Justine Simmons!
The Hip Hop legend and his real-life wife will star in their very own 10-episode scripted comedy series at Netflix.
The multi-camera comedy stars Rev. Run as a legendary rapper whose plans for slowing down are thwarted when his wife Justine (played by his real-life wife, Justine) decides to pursue her own dreams. While Rev and Justine have starred in several reality shows over the years, this is their first scripted family sitcom playing characters loosely inspired by themselves.
The Rev. Run comedy has an interesting backstory. ABC landed the script, from ABC Studios and Amblin Television, in October 2016 with a sizable penalty attached after a multiple-network bidding war. The Disney-owned broadcaster then passed on picking up the multicamera comedy to pilot.
