'Run The World' Trailer: Starz's Harlem-Set Comedy On Four Friends From 'Living Single' Creator

Starz has dropped the first trailer for Run the World. The eight-episode, half-hour series is created by Leigh Davenport, who will executive producer with showrunner Yvette Lee Bowser, who created Living Single . It is a Lionsgate Television production.

The logline: Run the World is the story of a group of Black women – vibrant, fiercely loyal best friends – who work, live and play in Harlem as they strive for world domination. At its core, it’s an unapologetically female show about enviable friendship and not only surviving – but thriving together.

The series stars Amber Stevens West, Andrea Bordeaux, Bresha Webb and Corbin Reed as its core four cast members. Tosin Morohunfola and Stephen Bishop are also series regulars. With the production start announcement, it was revealed that Living Single star Erika Alexander, Nick Sagar and Jay Walker will recur in the series, and Tonya Pinkins will be a guest star.

Directors for the series include Millicent Shelton (pilot director), Justin Tipping, Jenée Lamarque and Nastran Dibai.
