“Run the World” premieres Sunday, May 16th on STARZ


Set in Harlem, “Run the World” follows a group of smart, funny, and vibrant thirty-something Black women – fiercely loyal best friends – who live, work and play in Harlem.  As they strive for world domination, they each navigate career highs and lows, hookups, and heartbreaks that causes them to re-evaluate who they are and where they are going.  At its core, it’s an authentic and unapologetic show about enviable friendship and not only surviving – but thriving together.


“Run the World” is created by Leigh Davenport (The Perfect Find, “Wendy Williams: The Hot Topic,” BET’s “Boomerang”) who will executive produce alongside showrunner Yvette Lee Bowser (“Living Single,” “black-ish,” Lionsgate’s “Dear White People”). The comedy series consists of eight half-hour episodes.


Cast: “Run the World” stars Amber Stevens West (“The Carmichael Show”), Bresha Webb (“Marlon”), Andrea Bordeaux (“NCIS: Los Angeles”), and Corbin Reid (“Valor”). The iconic Erika Alexander (“Living Single”), plus Stephen Bishop (Imposters), Tosin Morohunfola (“Black Lightning”), Nick Sagar (“Queen of the South”), and Tonya Pinkins as “Gwynn” (“All My Children”), are also in the cast.


Music: Emmy® award-winning and four-time Grammy® award-winning artist Robert Glasper composed the series alongside fellow series composer Derrick Hodge. AAFCA award-winning Morgan Rhodes gave life to the soundtrack as Music Supervisor.


Costumes: Emmy® award-winning designer stylist Patricia Field consulted on wardrobe, alongside series costume designer, Tracy L. Cox, both known for their iconic work on “Sex and the City” and The Devil Wears Prada.
