Family Comedy Starring Rev. Run Receives Series Order at Netflix

The streaming giant has handed out a 10-episode series pickup to an untitled comedy starring Joseph "Rev. Run" Simmons and his wife, Justine Simmons.

The multicamera comedy stars Rev. Run as a legendary rapper whose plans for slowing down are thwarted when his wife Justine (played by his real-life wife, Justine) decides to pursue her own dreams. While Rev and Justine have starred in several reality shows over the years, this is their first scripted family sitcom playing characters loosely inspired by themselves. (Rev. Run was a founding member of Run-D.M.C. and is a practicing minister.)

The Rev. Run comedy has an interesting backstory. ABC landed the script, from ABC Studios and Amblin Television, in October 2016 with a sizable penalty attached after a multiple-network bidding war. The Disney-owned broadcaster then passed on picking up the multicamera comedy to pilot.

Bronson penned the script for the comedy. Andrew Reich (Friends) will serve as showrunner. The duo executive produce alongside Rev. Run and his manager, Michael Lehmann of Simmons Lehman Productions, Justine Simmons and Amblin Television co-presidents Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey. The comedy hails from ABC Signature Studios. Production will begin in January.
