Full story below…
Luckett will star alongside Yaya DaCosta and Morris Chestnut in the series which is helmed by writer/executive producer Karin Gist and executive producer Lee Daniels.
Inspired by Lawrence Otis Graham’s critically praised book ‘Our Kind of People: Inside America’s Black Upper Class,’ the show follows strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (DaCosta) as she sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her game-changing haircare line that highlights the natural beauty of Black women. However, she discovers a dark secret about her mother’s past that will flip her world upside-down and shake up this community forever.
According to Deadline, Luckett will play Leah Franklin-Dupont, a bold and successful businesswoman, who, along with her husband Raymond (Chestnut), has ascended to the upper echelon of the wealthy Black elite in Martha’s Vineyard.
She feels the pressure of her position, as well as a responsibility to give back to the Black community. However, when Angela (DaCosta) arrives and starts to stir things up and threaten her family’s legacy, Leah makes it her mission to bar Angela from acceptance into the elite before she pulls down all Leah’s family has built.
The high-profile gig follows Luckett’s widely praised performance in shows such as OWN’s ‘Greenleaf’ and adds to the star’s multi-dimensional career – which includes a multi-Platinum music career as a soloist.
More power to her!
