MEDIA ALERT: SHANOLA HAMPTON SIGNS OVERALL WITH NBCU TV & STREAMING

Actress to Star In and Produce "Dangerous Moms" for NBC

NBCU Television and Streaming and Universal Television have entered into a talent holding deal with Shanola Hampton, co-star of the highly successful and critically acclaimed Showtime drama "Shameless," which recently completed its 11th and final season.

Under the terms of the deal, Hampton will collaborate with Universal Television to develop and star in scripted studio projects for NBCU's television and streaming platforms.

For the first project as part of this agreement, Hampton has been cast in a starring role as "Monique Wallace" and will serve as a producer, in the NBC pilot "Dangerous Moms," from Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.

Based on the Spanish original series "SeƱoras del (h)Ampa," "Dangerous Moms" is a surprising off-center dark dramedy about four diverse mothers who accidentally kill the queen bee of their school's PTA during the demonstration of a new high-end food processor. The story becomes a female anthem about friendship and family as it tells the story of one completely unprepared group of women who must juggle their everyday lives while their worlds are turned upside down.

"I've worked with Shanola since casting her in "Shameless" at Showtime and I'm excited to continue our relationship with her," said Beth Klein, Executive Vice President, Talent and Casting, Universal Television. "Shanola is an immensely talented artist and we're glad to welcome her to Universal Television."

"We loved working with Shanola on a recent comedy pilot and recognized immediately that she is a force of nature and a breakout star," said Grace Wu, Executive Vice President, Casting, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "Shanola's considerable talents span both comedy and drama and we are thrilled to have her as part of the NBCU family."

Hampton stared alongside William H. Macy in Showtime's iconic, award-winning series "Shameless." She portrayed the Gallaghers' sassy neighbor, Veronica "V" Ball. Hampton made her directorial debut in the recent 11th and final season of the show.

Hampton will be seen later this year in the upcoming Netflix film "Deadly Illusion," opposite Dermot Mulroney.

She is repped by Reel Talent Management and Buchwald.
