Business Of Showbusiness

Gabrielle Union may have a new acting gig lined up.  She's set to to star in an upcoming NBC detective drama.  It's about the drama surrounding a detective (to be played by Union) who must race to save someone's life before it's too late.  This will be her second time teaming up and helping to develop a series with writer Frank Spotnitz, who wrote the last series Gabby starred in "Night Stalker".  No word on when the new show will begin taping or airing. And speaking of NBC, writer and creator Mara Brock Akil is set to create a new series for the network.  The "Girlfriends" and "The Game" head honcho is likely going to bring her fabulosity to the NBC network to write the script and executive produce a buddy comedy based on the 2006 book Making Friends With Black People.  According to BV:
About the state of race relations in the U.S., the project is being developed as a sitcom for NBC, and Salim Akil, her husband, is also on board too.  'Making Friends' will center on two guys -- one African-American and one white -- who become close friends, but who don't necessarily see things the same way. Nick Adams, a standup comic, wrote the book as a humorous look at how people dance around issues of race. He'll serve as a co-producer on the project.
By the way, Mrs. Akil is one of only two black women producing multiple shows on the air for 2007-08 season, Shonda Rhimes (creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice) being the other.  I see my Soror is doing fabulous things...
