“Our incredibly talented cast and executive producers Yvette and Leigh are set to return, and we’re excited to welcome Rachelle back into the STARZ family leading as showrunner and executive producer.”
Run the World follows a group of smart, funny, and vibrant thirty-something Black women — fiercely loyal best friends — who live, work and play in Harlem. As they strive for world domination, they each navigate career highs and lows, hookups and heartbreaks that causes them to re-evaluate who they are and where they are going.
At its core, it’s an authentic and unapologetic show about enviable friendship and not only surviving – but thriving together.
The series also stars Stephen Bishop (Moneyball, Imposters) and Tosin Morohunfola (Black Lightning).
Erika Alexander (Living Single), Nick Sagar (Queen of the South), Jay Walker (Grey’s Anatomy) and Tonya Pinkins guest starred in season one.
