A Black Lady Sketch Show mastermind Robin Thede and comedian London Hughes are set to star in the reboot of Perfect Strangers at HBO Max. This is such good news that I think we should do the Dance of Joy!
Perfect Strangers is part of Thede’s overall deal with Warner Bros. Television. She will write the half-hour multi-cam comedy which is currently in development. The redux will follow the titular perfect strangers, Dejay (Thede) and Poppy (Hughes) who unexpectedly discover they are half-sisters when they both inherit a one-bedroom apartment above a trap yoga studio in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Polar opposites, they must learn how to live and work together.
When it was first announced, I wasn’t diggin’ this Perfect Strangers reboot, but now I’m totally on board.
Thede is repped by WME and Ziffren Brittenham and Hughes is repped by UTA, Curtis Brown, Haven Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham.
