Starz has given a pilot green light to half-hour comedy Run the World, which has cast Amber Stevens West (The Carmichael Show) and Bresha Webb (Marlon) as two of its four leads. The project hails from Boomerang writer Leigh Davenport; Dear White People co-showrunner Yvette Lee Bowser; and Lionsgate TV, where Bowser is under an overall deal. Millicent Shelton (black-ish, P-Valley) is set to direct. Created, written and executive produced by Davenport, Run the World is the story of a group of four black, 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 friendship and not only surviving — but thriving together.
