Amazon Studios has greenlit 10 episodes of an untitled single-camera comedt from Tracy Oliver (“Girls Trip,” “The Awkward Black Girl”) about the lives of four black women in New York City. Oliver will be writing and executive producing the show. Amazon Studios and Universal Television will produce the show in association with Amy Poehler’s production company, Paper Kite Productions.
Originally called “Harlem,” the series will follow these friends since college as they navigate sex, relationships and chasing their dreams.
“This series is a dream project for me,” said Oliver. “I found the perfect partners in Amy Poehler, Amazon Studios and Universal, who have championed this project from the beginning. I can’t wait to get started and share the story of these four women navigating the complexities of adulthood through their unbreakable friendship.”
Oliver will executive produce along with Poehler and Kim Lessing from Paper Kite, as well as 3 Arts’ Dave Becky.
