Client: Patricia “Ms. Pat” Williams - Executive Producer, Talent
Ms. Pat Show August 12th BET+ Premiere | The Ms. Pat Show is a BET+ original multi-cam sitcom, inspired by the stand-up comedy and memoir of comedian Patricia “Ms. Pat” Williams.
The Ms. Pat Show follows a fictionalized version of Williams’ own life story. A comedian, author, podcaster and actress, Pat Williams (Instagram) brings a hilarious perspective to her work and also has an incredibly moving story. By the age of 15, she was a single mother of two selling crack in the inner city of Atlanta under her street name, Rabbit (which is also the title of her book).
SERIES LOGLINE: Based on Ms. Pat’s stand-up comedy and memoir, THE MS. PAT SHOW is the story of a former convicted felon turned suburban mom and stand-up comedian, whose hustle and resilient spirit were forged on the streets of Atlanta. To much reserve, she now finds herself in conservative middle America alongside her penny-pinching husband played by J. Bernard Calloway (“City On A Hill”), a struggle of a sister played by Tami Roman (“The Family Business”), and two distinct sets of kids played by Theodore Barnes (“The Prince of Peoria”), newcomer Briyana Guadalupe and Vince Swann (“50 Central”), raised under very different circumstances.
Brian Grazer, Lee Daniels, President of Imagine Television Samie Kim Falvey, and Anthony Hill (who serves as the series’ showrunner) will executive produce, alongside Ms. Pat and Jordan E. Cooper (“Pose”), who also penned the pilot. THE MS. PAT SHOW marks Grazer’s and Daniels’ first scripted project for BET+
