According to the outlet:

Written by Thede, the project is inspired in part by her childhood growing up dirt poor in a trailer park. The show 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.

Now that Kenya Barris has officially parted ways with ABC and headed to Netflix, it’s nice to know there is some new content on the way from a smart, forward-thinking Black woman like Robin Thede.

Robin Thede has been blazing trails in the comedy world for years. At The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, she made history as the first black woman to serve as “head writer” on a late night talk show.

Although she has never done stand-up herself, she has written jokes for some of the industry’s biggest names including Chris Rock, Kevin Hart and Anthony Anderson among others.

“I would imagine I have written over 100,000 jokes in my lifetime and I can hardly remember them,” she told theGrio.com in an exclusive interview. “I have no joke recall unless someone reminds me.”
