Ain’t it about time??? Seems like this kinda show is LONG overdue. Whoopi Goldberg is making it rain on them hoes — yet again, this time by collecting a check from ABC for a new sitcom script she’s penned about a black woman dating her white co-worker!
According to Shadow And Act reports:
Whoopi Goldberg and Ben Silverman have teamed up to sell an interracial comedy spec script to ABC titled Iman & Andy, which will follow two 20-something coworkers who work at an online magazine, who are happily secretly dating, until when their new editor-in-chief exposes them as a couple, and forces them to team up on a relationship advice blog.
The spec script is being written by Angela Ruhinda, and will be executive produced by Goldberg and Silverman, along with Tom Leonardis, Jimmy Fox, and Principato-Young Entertainment.
“I’m so excited we are doing this together. I think this is going to be fun and interesting television,” said Goldberg.
Up next for Whoopi, an adaptation of Terry McMillan’s A Day Late and a Dollar Short for Lifetme. Her HBO documentary Whoopi Goldberg Presents Moms Mabley, made its debut on the network earlier this week.
Do we have “Scandal’s” success to thank for this? Either way, we’re happy to see Whoopi winning!
