'SINGLE LADIES' EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ON TV'S VIEW OF BLACK WOMEN


The veteran writer explains the premise of VH1's first-ever hour-long scripted series and introduces a new Black reality.

The lack of diversity in prime-time and, in general, network television programming has long been a topic of conversation in social hubs. However, when talk that a Girlfriends meets Sex and the City styled show would debut on VH1 (coupled with BET's recent pickup of The Game), viewers started chatting about a possible resurgence in Black television shows.

It’s no surprise that the power player pioneering this buzz is Stacy A. Littlejohn, a writer and producer who has lent her talents to hit shows such as Moesha, One on One and All of Us. The 15-year plus industry veteran is currently creator, executive producer and head writer ofSingle Ladies, a romantic comedy produced by Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit Entertainment and starring Stacey Dash and LisaRaye McCoy, which premieres Monday, May 30 at 9pm EST on VH1. The series chronicles the lives of three best friends—Val, Keisha and April—as they work Atlanta's social scene. (more)
