October 4th 2017

Viola Davis and Larry Wilmore are bringing a new comedy to ABC!

The award-winning How to Get Away With Murder actress and the Insecure co-creator for the multi-cam comedy.

It is written and executive produced by co-exec producer of Insecure, Regina Hicks.

The show "centers around three former sorority sisters who lost touch after college reunite during a pivotal point in each of their lives and realize that now that they are of a certain age sometimes it’s okay to crack and no one will be there for you like your sisters."

Davis and her producing partner/husband Julius Tennon are exec producing through their production company, JuVee Productions. Wilmore is exec producing through Wilmore Films. This falls under both JuVee and Wilmore's overall deals at ABC.

“Viola and I are inspired by Regina Hicks and to have Larry Wilmore EP is a dream.Seeing these three African American women who appear not to age but, to have challenges that we can all relate to and in a way, we have not seen before, will be a revelation," said Tennon.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of this exciting project and to collaborate with the crazy talented, Regina Hicks. BDC is hilarious, heartwarming, and shines a light on women who are hiding in plain sight," said Wilmore.
