The newly announced ABC project which is written by Tom Straw will center around comedian Zainab Johnson. Johnson isn’t expected to go unguided in her first major TV series as Wanda Sykes is attached to executive produce the series. The new comedy will tell the story of a Muslim model dealing with life’s obstacles.
ABC has put in development an untitled comedy from actress-comedian Zainab Johnson, comedy veteran Tom Straw (The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson) and Wanda Sykes and Page Hurwitz’s Push It Productions. Written by Straw based on a story by Straw and Johnson, the project centers on a beautiful Muslim model as she inches toward her 30th birthday. As her career starts to slow down, she’s confronted by challenges she never faced before and starts questioning the choices she’s making with her life. When she’s forced to move back home with her opinionated brothers, she discovers that they’re all on the same quest to reinvent themselves. Straw executive produces with Sykes and Hurwitz via their Push It Prods. ABC Studios is the studio. Johnson was the 2013 winner of HBO’s American Black Film Festival Comedy Wings Competition, and the following year was a semi-finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.
