Gabrielle Union To Star In New ABC Series

Gabrielle Union is heading to TV- ABC TV to be exact.As previously reported, Gabrielle signed a six-figure deal with ABC and Touchstone to develop new shows for the station and it seems their first venture will be “Football Wives”, a remake of a popular BBC soap opera.Gabrielle will not only produce the show, but is scheduled to star in it as well.Gabby will portray and ex model turned singer who is married to a star wide receiver.No date has been set so far as to when the show will start airing, but I can only assume it will be added to the line-up this fall.

Btw, Gabrielle actually starred in a short lived ABC drama some years ago titled “Night Stalker” and I just so happen to have a few promo shots from that series. Geniet van!!

  1. African American don’t do so well on ABC.I can’t see too many of us tuning in to that channel because out of habit we don’t.Of course I will check it out and hope it’s good.I just think it’s potential is limited because of the channel it is on.

  2. I checked it out, I spoke to Jeanie B the casting director and they only have two black female parts. One obviously is already cast, it would be nice to have more roles available to us!:cry:

  3. I’ll be checking the sista out and I hope her show is a success.

  4. Football wives? Uh…nah. It sounds so uninteresting. I don’t like football! I want to support black actresses. But, not in crappy shows! Hopefully, Shonda Rhimes( creator of Grey’s Anatomy) will make a series on abc about black women. Like, um…hmmm….. for a example a black woman starting her own firm after quiting her job at high law firm due some drama involving a another lawyer.It would show the issues that a lot of professional black women have deal with. Like, parents wanting you be married with kids. Dealing with a society that still has issues with hardworking black women. Sanna Lathan could star as the lawyer! I would watch it….:cool:

  5. Actually Football Wives on BBC is a very good show. I watch it all the time. If this is going to be the American version of that show, then it will be better than The Game on The CW, which I do like by the way.
