Sherri Shepherd is set to produce and star in the ABC comedy pilot, “Black Don’t Crack.”
According to Deadline, the series follows three former sorority sisters who lost touch after college, but reunite during a pivotal point in their lives.
They realize sometimes it’s okay to crack and when you do, no one will be there for you like your friends.
Sherri will play the role of Angela Wright, a native New Yorker somewhere between 45 and death, but it’s hard to tell because “black don’t crack.”
She’s a single mom who put aside her musical dreams to raise her son after her husband died. She’s been holding it down alone for years, taking care of her family instead of herself.
When she is confronted with a personal crisis, she reunites with her sorority sisters to recapture the passion, ambition and sisterhood of their college glory days.
Kelly Park has been tapped to direct the pilot, from writer/executive producer Regina Hicks and exec producers Viola Davis, Julius Tennon, and Larry Wilmore.
Congrats to Sherri Shepherd!
I’m looking forward to checking out this pilot.
