In UCB’s Pilot Season, veteran comedy TV writers take the audience’s suggestion of a show title, and, on the spot, develop a pilot for a brand new show. It could be a sitcom, a prestige drama, or any number of different genres. Talented improvisers then take that pitch and bring it to life on stage.
In celebration of Black History Month, we’re shining a spotlight on the extraordinary Black showrunners who have been breaking barriers and shaping narratives in the television industry. Join us for an evening with Diallo Riddle (South Side / Sherman’s Showcase), Phil Augusta Jackson (Grand Crew), and Syreeta Singleton (Rap Sh!t) as they take an audience suggestion and create a show on the spot. Accompanied by a cast of all Black improvisers (plus an ethnically ambiguous co-producer), this event promises to be a celebration of Black creativity and storytelling.
In solidarity with ongoing efforts to improve diversity and representation in the industry, all proceeds from the show will go to the Entertainment Community Fund, which provides emergency financial assistance and supports underrepresented writers and actors.
Improvisers: Bri Giger, Chris De La Cruz, Corin Wells, Jerah Milligan, Jacquis Neal, Saleh Karaman, Shakira Paye, X Mayo
Writers: Dewayne Perkins (The Blackening), Phil Augusta Jackson (Grand Crew), Syreeta Singleton (Rap Sh!t)
