To celebrate the release of Run The World, the latest original series debuting on STARZPLAY, we sat down with some of its cast to find out all about this fantastic new show.
Created and written by Leigh Davenport, “Run The World” is the story of a group of Black women – vibrant, fiercely loyal best friends. At its core, it’s an unapologetically female show about enviable friendship and not only surviving – but thriving together.
Amber Stevens West and Corbin Reid make up half of the show’s fierce quartet and spoke to us about the lure of the show, what it means for female representation and friendship, its importance and why Harlem feels like the “fifth part” of the ensemble.
The series stars Andrea Bordeaux (“NCIS: Los Angeles”), Bresha Webb (“The Last O.G”), Corbin Reid (“How to get away with Murder”, “Valor”) and Amber Stevens West (“Criminal Minds”, 22 Jump Street) as the lead characters. The show comes from writer and Executive Producer Leigh Davenport, Executive Producer Yvette Leigh Bowser (“Blackish”, “Living Single”, “Dear White People”) , and Costume Designer Tracy L. Cox (“Sex and the City”, “Devil Wears Prada”) with Costume Consultant Patricia Field (“Sex and the City”, “Devil Wears Prada”).
