Shameik Moore has been cast in a starring role opposite Emily Ratajkowski, Lilly Singh, Calum Worthy and Jimmy Tatro in the NBC comedy pilot, Bright Futures.
The single-camera comedy is from black-ish and grown-ish creator, Kenya Barris and grown-ish writers Hale Rothstein, Danny Segal and Isaac Schamis.
Lisa Kudrow would narrate the would-be series.
Written by the grown-ish writers, Bright Futures “centers on a group of friends all stumbling through the transition from the clueless, immature twentysomethings they are now to the successful professionals they’re destined to be. Moore plays Aaron, one of four friends living in an L.A. apartment. A drinking blowout on the night he passed the bar put a halt to any grandiose ideas and he now works as a lowly personal injury attorney.”
Moore, most known for his role in Netflix’s The Get Down and the coming-of-age film, Dope, lends his voice to Miles Morales in the upcoming Spider-Man animated film and can also be seen in the upcoming movie, Cut Throat City.
