Now called STEP SISTERS will star Megalyn Echikunwoke, Eden Sher, Lyndon Smith, Gage Golightly, Nia Jervier, Alessandra Torresani, Marque Richardson, Naturi Naughton, and Matt McGorry.
The story centers on Echikunwoke as Jamilah, an ambitious black sorority girl who, in order to get admitted to the law school of her dreams, agrees to cross culture lines and teach the exclusive art of black Greek stepping to a band of wild, Kardashian-obsessed white sorority girls whose charter is about to be revoked.
Charles Stone directs the comedy with a script from Chuck Haward. Matt Alvarez, Lena Waithe, and Benjamin Cory Jones produce. Broad Green’s Josh Reinhold executive produces.
Echikunwoke most recently starred in A&E’s Damien, The Following, and voicing the character of Vixen in the CW Seed animated series which is part of the CW-DC universe. She also appeared as the character in an episode of Arrow.
