Amazon has greenlit a new comedy series from writer Tracy Oliver and actor-producer Amy Poehler. The 10-episode show, which previously had a tentative title "Harlem" , will follow lives of four black women – friends from their college days at New York University – as they navigate sex, relationships and chasing their dreams.
Oliver, best known for co-writing comedies such as "Girls Trip" and "Barbershop: The Next Cut", has created and penned the show. She will also executive produce it with Poehler. Amazon Studios and Universal Television are producing the single-camera comedy in collaboration with Poehler's Paper Kite Productions, reported Deadline.
"This series is a dream project for me. I found the perfect partners in Amy Poehler, Amazon Studios and Universal, who have championed this project from the beginning. "I can't wait to get started and share the story of these four women navigating the complexities of adulthood through their unbreakable friendship," Oliver said in a statement.
