Run The World” follows a tight-knit circle of smart, funny, and vibrant thirty-something Black women, as they each take their own path towards a common life goal: running the world.

Based in Harlem, these fiercely loyal best friends provide support and honest advice to each other while facing the many challenges life throws their way — complex struggles as Black women, the chaos of living in the concrete jungle, dating and relationships, family drama, and striving for career success — all while endeavoring to make that climb to the top as they build their own empires.

With showrunner and executive producer Yvette Lee Bowser (Living Single, black-ish, Netflix’s Dear White People) and creator and executive producer Leigh Davenport (The Perfect Find, Wendy Williams: The Hot Topic, BET’s Boomerang) at the helm, the new series offers a candid look into Black friendship and the Black female experience.
