The only Queen I acknowledge is Latifah.
The series is entitled Friends in Strange Places and will highlight the adventures that a set of female comedians and their famous friends have all over the world.
“There are so many funny, brilliant women in this industry, and—with plenty of successful male-driven travel series out there—a comedic docuseries about sisterhood and adventure is just the type of uncharted territory we want to plant our flag in,” Latifah said. “I’m so excited to develop a show that not only elevates and highlights female comedians but also brings them together for an amazing time that will also be a trip for viewers.”
Latifah will executive-produce along with Shakim Compere, co-founder of her company, Flavor Unit Entertainment. Chris Grant and Drew Buckley will executive-produce for Electus, with Allison Mandell Hudson and Randi Michel also executive-producing.
“This creative provides a hilarious, unique and personal look at the power of female friendships, and we can’t imagine a more ideal partner, and consummate dynamo, than Queen Latifah and her incredible team at Flavor Unit,” Grant and Buckley said. “We’re excited to take out to the marketplace a project that brings such a fresh perspective.”
So who’s going to be among the jet set? Maybe Mo’Nique, Tiffany Haddish or Wanda Sykes?
