Based on Ms. Pat’s stand-up comedy and memoir, THE MS. PAT SHOW is the story of a former convicted felon turned suburban mom and stand-up comedian, whose hustle and resilient spirit were forged on the streets of Atlanta. To much reserve, she now finds herself in conservative middle America alongside her penny-pinching husband played by J. Bernard Calloway (“City On A Hill”), a struggle of a sister played by Tami Roman (“The Family Business”), and two distinct sets of kids played by Theodore Barnes (“The Prince of Peoria”), newcomer Briyana Guadalupe, Vince Swann (“50 Central”) and Brittany Inge (“Boomerang”), the latter two raised under very different circumstances.
Brian Grazer, Lee Daniels, President of Imagine Television Samie Kim Falvey, and Anthony Hill (who serves as the series’ showrunner) will executive produce, alongside Patricia “Ms. Pat” Williams and Jordan E. Cooper (“Pose”), who also penned the pilot. THE MS. PAT SHOW marks Grazer’s and Daniels’ first scripted project for BET+
