Regina Hall Lands New CBS Pilot

Kerry Washington’s recent quote about it being “a great time to be a black actress in Hollywood” is looking more and more true. Not only is the 35-year old actress the star of her own ABC drama this season, but so is Meagan Good, Danai Gurira, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kym Whitley and now Regina Hall.

According to Shadow & Act, Regina will join Martin Lawrence in the actor’s recently announced, but still untitled, CBS comedy pilot.

Martin will play a widowed father (Ray) of two teenagers who, after losing his job, decides to enroll in the police academy.

Regina will reportedly play a character named Lisa, described as a “cute and perky police officer,” who sets her sights on the new enrollee.

No word on when exactly the show will air, but we can only assume it will be this fall.

In the meantime, all you Regina fans can head to the theater on April 20th to see the brown skin beauty in the new comedy “Think Like a Man.”

  1. I was wondering if the interest in black actors as leads had anything to do with BET improved programming, original programs, award shows, etc. and TV One’s original programming. We built UPN to The CW, Fox into a major contributor (Martin, Living Single, Roc among others), now TBS is hiring black. It seems when Debra Lee nem brought “The Game” back, that was groundbreaking after being cancelled! They dropped the ball with the whack storylines and some of the changes. But, did gud with their other new sitcoms and Sunday Best and BET Honors programs. I’ve watched BET more over the last couple of years than I have in years!

    I’m happy for these ladies, all black actors who get to work!Love Regina and will be watching!
