DESCRIPTION:
(from BET's press release, October 2020) Today, BET+ announced the pick-up of new original scripted comedy, "Ms. Pat," from Imagine Television and Lee Daniels Entertainment. Based on Patricia "Ms. Pat" Williams' stand-up comedy and memoir, the ten-episode multi-camera sitcom will tell the story of a former convicted felon turned suburban mom (Ms. Pat), whose hustle and resilient spirit was forged on the streets of Atlanta. To much reserve, she now finds herself in conservative middle America alongside her well-intentioned husband, played by J. Bernard Calloway ("City On A Hill"), a struggle of a sister played by Tami Roman ("The Family Business"), and two distinct sets of kids played by Theodore Barnes ("The Prince of Peoria"), newcomer Briyana Guadalupe, and Vince Swann ("50 Central"), raised under very different circumstances. Brian Grazer, Lee Daniels, President of Imagine Television Samie Kim Falvey, and Anthony Hill (who serves as the series' showrunner) will executive produce, alongside Ms. Pat and Jordan E. Cooper ("Star"), who also penned the pilot. "Ms. Pat" marks Grazer's and Daniels' first scripted project on the network.
