From The Nightly Show to The Rundown with Robin Thede to A Black Lady Sketch Show, Robin Thede has steadily risen as a power player in comedy television. Her profile just got raised even higher as she just signed an overall deal to develop programming for Warner Bros. TV properties over the next several years. Thede’s done so many things over the years
Not only does Thede deserve such a deal for her track record over the last several years, but this is definitely the sort of the equity that Hollywood needs in putting BIPOC in true positions of power. It wasn’t too long ago that Larry Wilmore got put in a similar position allowing him to bring Issa Rae to HBO to make the sensation that is Insecure.
So, we’re incredibly intrigued to see what Thede will get on to TV/computer screens next in the not so distant future.
