ABC Developing Comedy Series Created By And Starring Robin Thede, Inspired By Her Childhood

Robin Thede is getting into business at ABC.

Thede, who recently hosted the late-night BET show The Rundown with Robin Thede, is creating a comedy series set at ABC in which she'd star.

She wrote the script for the show which "is inspired in part by her childhood growing up dirt poor in a trailer park." The potential series will "explore how a difficult upbringing shaped Robin Sanders (Thede), a famous and successful financial advisor, and will vacillate between the character’s adulthood and childhood as it examines how your past always pops up in the present."

Sony Pictures TV is the studio.

Kay Cannon, Doug Robinson and Alison Greenspan are executive producers alongside Thede and her producing partner, Lavern McKinnon.

Deadline first reported the news.
