More diversity is headed to HBO. According to a new report, the network has put in development Brown Girls, a comedy series based on the OpenTV web series, which debuted on Elle.com earlier this year.
The writer Fatimah Asghar and director Samantha Bailey, also will oversee the TV adaptation as writer/executive producer and director/executive producer, respectively.
Brown Girls centers on a queer Pakistani-American writer and a commitment-phobic Black-American musician who rely on their friendship and sisterhood as they try to rise above their lives’ messiness in pursuit of their dreams.
The project is not related to the Freeform comedy pilot of the same name. Watch the first episode below.
