STARZ's Run the World Returns May 26; Netflix Animated Comedy from the Minds Behind 30 Rock

Run the World

STARZ released the key art and trailer for the critically acclaimed series Run the World set to premiere on Friday, May 26. Vicariously live through Whitney (Amber Stevens West), Renee (Bresha Webb) and Sondi (Corbin Reid) as they fashionably navigate through the ups and downs of life, love and careers in the pursuit to have it all. They're moving on, and moving up. The second season of the half-hour comedy series will premiere at midnight (ET) on the STARZ app, all STARZ streaming and on-demand platforms. On linear, it will debut on STARZ at 9:30PM ET/PT in the U.S. and Canada.

Run the World chronicles the euphoric highs and heartbreaking lows that Whitney, Renee and Sondi must endure in their pursuit of world domination. Whitney must follow the road of self-discovery in order to thrive in her life with or without Ola, while Renee and Sondi must decide what they truly want out of life - both in love and their careers. Whether they reunite with a past love, taste the life of a millionaire, or see their career take off in a radical new direction, these powerful Black women, fortified by their impenetrable friendship, won't let anything get in their way.

Amber Stevens West (The Carmichael Show), Bresha Webb (Marlon) and Corbin Reid (Valor) return to their roles as "Whitney," "Renee" and "Sondi," three best friends living and thriving in Harlem. Stephen Bishop (Moneyball) and Tosin Morohunfola (Black Lightning) return in series regular roles. Erika Alexander (Living Single) and Nick Sagar (Queen of the South) will also be returning as recurring guest stars and Jay Walker (Grey's Anatomy) and Tonya Pinkins (Enchanted) will return as guest stars. STARZ previously announced that Tika Sumpter (Sonic the Hedgehog 2, mixed-ish), Comedian CP (Detroiters, Love Life) and Isha Blaaker (A Madea's Homecoming, The Flight Attendant) will be joining the second season in recurring roles, while Cree Summer (Better Things, Queen Sugar) and Ashley Blaine Featherson-Jenkins (Dear White People, Bad Hair) will guest star.




Mulligan

When most of Earth is destroyed by aliens, can a few survivors rebuild what's left of America and form a more perfect union? Mulligan - a new Netflix comedy series created by Robert Carlock and Sam Means - premieres May 12, only on Netflix. 10 half-hour episodes have been ordered. Creators: Robert Carlock, Sam Means. Executive Producers: Tina Fey, Robert Carlock, Sam Means, David Miner, Eric Gurian, Scott Greenberg, Joel Kuwahara. Starring: Nat Faxon, Chrissy Teigen, Tina Fey, Sam Richardson, Dana Carvey, and Phil LaMarr. Recurring Guest Stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Ayo Edebiri, Ronny Chieng, and Kevin Michael Richardson.

After Earth is destroyed by an alien attack, a rag-tag band of survivors has to start society over from scratch. It's an opportunity to learn from humanity's past mistakes and get things right this time. Or make the same mistakes all over again. Probably the second one. From the minds behind 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Mulligan is co-created by executive producers Robert Carlock and Sam Means, who serve as co-showrunners. Executive producers also include Tina Fey, David Miner, Erin Gurian, Scott Greenberg and Joel Kuwahara. Mulligan is produced by Universal Television (a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios) in association with Little Stranger, Inc., Bevel Gears, 3 Arts Entertainment and Bento Box Entertainment.
