Inside The New York City Premiere Event Of New Starz Series ‘Run The World’
On Sunday, May 16, STARZ hosted an intimate premiere screening of their new original series “Run The World” at the fabulous Beekman Hotel rooftop in New York City.
Guests were treated to a pre-screening reception on the rooftop which featured an upbeat vibe with DJ Tiff McFierce. Guests enjoyed bites by world renowned restaurateur, Tom Colicchio.
Attendees included “Run The World” Showrunner / Executive Producer Yvette Lee Bowser and Creator / Executive Producer Leigh Davenport. Cast members in attendance included Amber Stevens West, Andrea Bordeaux, Bresha Webb, Corbin Reid, Nick Sagar, Jay Walker, Sasha Hutchings and James Chen.
“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.
