DESCRIPTION:
(from IFC's press release, May 2018) IFC announced today it has greenlit eight episodes of the scripted series Sherman's Showcase, a new musical variety sketch comedy show created, written and executive produced by Bashir Salahuddin (GLOW, Snatched) and Diallo Riddle (Marlon, Rise) and produced by Frank Scherma and Jim Bouvet of RadicalMedia (Stan Against Evil). John Legend, Mike Jackson and Ty Stiklorius are also attached to serve as executive producers through their Get Lifted Film Co. (Underground, Jesus Christ Superstar). The show is set to air on IFC in 2019. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Soul Train, American Bandstand, The Midnight Special and In Living Color, each episode of Sherman's Showcase is hosted by Sherman McDaniel (Salahuddin) as he takes viewers through time via music and comedy drawn from the forty-year library of a legendary (but fictional) musical variety show. Whether it's a questionably attired funk super group in the 1970's, an up-and-coming MC in the 1980's or an R&B diva from the 1990s, Sherman's Showcase has it all: music, comedy, games and dancing, with an exuberant host who's been with the show throughout its run.
