Skai Jackson Cast In Lee Daniels Comedy ‘Our People’
Skai Jackson has been cast in Fox’s pilot, ‘Our People’ joining Matthew Glave. Both will be series regulars. The culture clash comedy is from Lee Daniels and Modern Family executive producer Vali Chandrasekaran.
Our People revolves around Abel (Bernard David Jones), a man from a bombastic African family that doesn’t have a word in their native language for “privacy,” and his fiancée Jenny (Beth Behrs), from a Midwestern family, as they try to build a normal life together — though nobody can agree what that “normal” means.
Glave will play Nick, the laid back and loving father to Jenny (Behrs). Jackson will portray Aisha, little sister to Abel (Jones).
The project is from Lee Daniels Entertainment, Endemol Shine and 20th Century Fox TV is based on the Israeli format Nevsu: A Young Multicultural Couple.
Jackson is currently on Disney Channel’s Jessie spinoff Bunk’d.
