IFC recently bought a comedy series starting women of color such as Tessa Thompson, Whoopi Goldberg, and La La Anthony:
“IFC has acquired U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to Furlough, a new comedy starring Tessa Thompson, Whoopi Goldberg, and La La Anthony.
Furlough revolves around a woman (Thompson) who lives with and cares for her aging mother (Goldberg), while working part-time at a jail. At work, she is given a chance to show off her abilities when she is assigned to accompany an unruly prisoner (Melissa Leo) on an emergency furlough to visit her dying mother. The trip does not go as planned.”
