STARZ PICKS UP COMEDY PILOT "RUN THE WORLD" TO SERIES FROM SHOWRUNNER AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER YVETTE LEE BOWSER

Santa Monica, Calif. - January 30, 2020 - Starz, a Lionsgate company (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), today announced it has given an eight-episode series order for "Run the World." The half-hour comedy is created and written by Leigh Davenport (The Perfect Find, untitled Wendy Williams biopic) who will executive produce with showrunner Yvette Lee Bowser (Lionsgate's "Dear White People," "Living Single") and Lionsgate Television, where Bowser's SisterLee Productions is under an overall deal. Millicent Shelton ("black-ish," "P-Valley") directed the pilot.

"Run the World" is the story of a group of 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 enviable friendship and not only surviving - but thriving together.

"'Run the World' is exactly the kind of bold, authentic, inclusive storytelling that Starz is committed to delivering to our global audience," said Jeffrey Hirsch, President and CEO of Starz. "We feel as though we have captured lightning in a bottle with the energy and chemistry of this cast and their portrayal of these distinct characters in this modern-day view of four female friends in New York City and we look forward to bringing the series to the platform."

The previously announced cast include Amber Stevens West ("The Carmichael Show") as "Whitney," Andrea Bordeaux ("NCIS: Los Angeles") as "Ella," Bresha Webb ("Marlon") as "Renee," Corbin Reid ("Valor") as "Sondi" and Stephen Bishop (Moneyball, Imposters) as "Matthew."

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.
