So so so much to tell.  Briefly, ‘cause I’ve got a ton of stuff to do today.  My brilliant friend, writer and producer Kathleen McGhee-Anderson hired me as Co-Ep on “Greenleaf” in the Fall of 2016.  I worked on that show until right before Christmas.  Early in 2017 I began developing the television series “Media” for TV One.  Hired writers, developed 8 brilliant scripts, but for reasons of their own, TV One decided not to go forward with the series.  Shortly after shutting down the writers room on “Media” the series and rewriting the scripts, I was hired by another brilliant, writer-producer friend and colleague, Felicia D. Henderson, to serve as Co-Exec Producer on the 10-episode second season of the series for BET.  That was Fall 2017.  Production ended right before Christmas.  Currently, posting the episodes, riding my bike, getting life back in order after 4 months living in Atlanta — and all’s beautiful.

Coolest cast on TV!  Left to Right: Zoe Renee, Jake Allyn, Jazz Raycole, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Anika Noni Rose, Sean Blakemore, Michelle DeFraites and Peyton Alex Smith.  Clawsome!


THE QUAD premieres January 23, 2018, 9pm on BET.  It’s the same time as BLACK LIGHTNING on the CW, so set your DVRs!
