Here’s the description: 


Run the World is the story of a group of Black women – vibrant, fiercely loyal best friends. At its core, it’s an unapologetically female show about enviable friendship and not only surviving – but thriving together.

Given the fact that Bowser is behind this series that features Black women anchored by their friendship, chances are good that this show is gonna be for us. Even more exciting is that Erika Alexander has signed on to be part of the series, reuniting her with her former Living Single boss.

“I’m genuinely excited to be producing such a joyous, authentic and complex depiction of Black women on screen,” Bowser said in a statement. “Our series will no doubt entertain and embolden more of us to live our truest and fullest lives.”

By the looks of the teaser, we may have another addiction on our hands when this series hits STARZ in 2021.
