NATURI NAUGHTON JOINS CAST OF STEP SISTERS

Nature Naughton Joins Ensemble Cast of ‘Step Sisters’

Naturi Naughton has joined the cast of the upcoming Broad Green comedy, Step Sisters. The Power actress is the latest name to be added to an ensemble cast that already includes Megalyn Echikunwoke (House of Lies), Nia Jervier (Dear White People), Marque Richardson (All the Way) and Eden Sher (The Middle)

Step Sisters was previously titled Ain’t No Half Steppin’ and reportedly centers around an ambitious black sorority girl who, in order to get admitted to the law school of her dreams, must teach a group of wild, party-obsessed white girls how to steal black culture and claim it as their own the art of black Greek stepping.

The film’s script was penned by Chuck Hayward, who recently wrote for Fox’s now cancelled freshman comedy, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life. Given how foolish that show was, I can’t say I’m shocked someone affiliated with it would be behind this offensive piece of garbage as well.

I rarely slam something before I see it, but the entire premise behind this film is insulting to black Greek life and the things those involved with it hold sacred.

Having said that, I still love Naturi. She’s awesome in Power. She’s a close friend of Nicole Beharie. But no ma’am. This film is not cool and the chances of me supporting it are pretty much slim to none.

  1. I googled the writer and he is a black man. They won’t be happy until they’ve replaced us in ever facet of our communities.

  2. I have decided to not support any show runner or writer or network who is guilty of shenanigans like the shady shit pulled on the Ichabbie and Bamon fans this past year. If we all stop supporting tripe, maybe we will start getting a better class of show runners and writers. The networks will follow the money. If the viewer ship increases for the quality shows, then we won’t get bombarded with all the trash that is out there.

    If PBS can do it on their limited budget, why cannot the big networks?
