Report: Larenz Tate, Laverne Cox, & Lance Gross Topline New ABC Shows

Published: Tuesday 14th Mar 2017 by Rashad

ABC is looking to take a few Ls in its upcoming season:  Larenz, Laverne, and Lance!

That’s right, after finding success with its shows ‘Black-ish,’ ‘Scandal,’ ‘How To Get Away with Murder,’ and other series that feature leading actors of colors, the prime network is looking to continue in that vein by introducing two new shows featuring Tate, Gross, and Cox as leads.

Get the details inside:

Via Deadline:

Sleepy Hollow alum Lance Gross has booked a series regular role opposite Meaghan Rath in The Trustee, ABC’s comedic one-hour pilot from The Smurfs writers Jay Scherick and David Ronn,

Written by Scherick and Ronn and directed by Michael Engler, The Trustee is described as a fun, female buddy cop comedy about Eliza Radley (Rath), a driven but stubborn detective who finds unlikely help from her precinct’s trustee, a larger-than-life ex-con (Cox) finishing out her prison sentence doing menial tasks for the police department.



Via Deadline:

Game of Silence and House of Lies alum Larenz Tate is set as the male lead opposite Allison Miller in the ABC drama pilot Salamander.

Written by Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg and directed by Gary Fleder, Salamander centers on Ethan (Tate), a brilliant but misanthropic engineer who recruits a skeptical Homeland Security psychiatrist, Nora (Miller), to help him track a mysterious bank robber whose theft of 66 specific safety deposit boxes, belonging to the elite and powerful, sets in motion a series of blackmails that might be linked to a greater conspiracy.

    Laverne seems like a nice person, but she’s a horrible actress.

      She tries too hard to impersonate Beyoncé on the red carpets too.

        She looks better than most women…I don’t understand how she’s a man.

    Why couldn’t they just get a real woman aside two men. Its basically three men hosting it.

    Why does ABC keep hiring Laverne C**. Their audience will not tune in for him. This ain’t Netflix.

  5. The Wig Snatcher (Shether) March 14, 2017

    Laverne C** is riding the right cøcks in Hollywood because it doesn’t matter how shows she stars in that flops, those old white gay men are determined to make fetch happen for her.
