Cedric the Entertainer Producing Fox Comedy ‘BBF’ Starring Kellee Stewart
Fox just put a new comedy into development produced by Cedric the Entertainer. Deadline reports that the network has given a script commitment to a single-cam comedy called BBF (Black Best Friend). The series — which is based on the life of Kellee Stewart (My Boys, Hot Tub Time Machine), who is also set to star — “blows up the trope and hijacks the camera away from the usual white female lead and onto the black best friend. It follows a black woman, caught between two cultures, who steps out of the shadows of her friends in search of her authentic self.” Stewart will also serve as a co-executive producer on the series alongside Cedric the Entertainer and former My Boys co-executive producer Sebastian Jones.
