Actress Gabrielle Union has been tapped to star in ‘Single Black Female’, BET’s hour long pilot from Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil, the husband-and-wife duo behind the cable network’s hit comedy series The Game.
Written by Brock Akil, ‘Single Black Female’ chronicles the work, family and social life of an Atlanta-based young African American woman responsible for hosting a 24-hour cable news network similar to Anderson Cooper 360.
A network spokesperson says that the show is “an opportunity to explore the life of a statistic often reported but never explored.” Let’s hope that just doesn’t include hood rat shit. Tasha Mack is doing a fine job.
