Yvette Lee Bowser, the creator of the iconic 90's favorite, Living Single is developing a comedy for Starz. She is looking to make a statement, as she did with the hit show in the 90's.
The show will be titled, On the Run, which will centers around a group of Black women who are lively and extremely loyal best friends who all live, work, and play in Harlem. Their collective goal: world domination. The show will unapologetically woman AND Black centered on friendship.The show will show the friends "not just surviving, but thriving together."
The show was created by Leigh Davenport, who writes for Boomerang on BET. Davenport and Bowser will both executive produce the show. Yvette Bowser also serves as the show-runner and an executive producer for Dear White People, on Netflix. Dear White People is also a barrier-breaking show, just as Living Single was. On the Run will fall under the deal Bowser has with Lionsgate.
Bowser said of the project, "I'm excited to be working with Leigh on this authentic, hilarious and empowering story about fearless, modern women lifting each other up through adversity and succeeding together. It's past time for this series. I'm also humbled to expand my longstanding relationship with Lionsgate and into the Starz orbit, which is home to strong female-driven shows and fresh creative voices."
We cannot wait to see what this show has to offer. We KNOW it will be good coming from Yvette.
