Regina Hall, one of the leads of Showtime’s Black Monday, has signed a first-look deal with the premium cable network.
As a part of the deal, a one-hour comedy special starring Hall, which she produces, is in development.
“Regina is an undeniable and brilliant force in Hollywood, both in front of and behind the camera,” said Israel. “She is one of the most dynamic and fearless actors of our generation and in her work on Black Monday, she hilariously destroys every scene she’s in. We are thrilled at Showtime to continue and expand our relationship with Regina as a producer and eager to get to work on what promises to be an ambitious slate.”
“I am excited to call Showtime home,” Hall said. “Working with Amy has been such a delightful and organic experience. I am thrilled to expand our partnership to create smart, meaningful and impactful stories.”
Aside from Black Monday, Hall executive produces and stars in the upcoming occult drama, Master, and is currently in production on the limited series Nine Perfect Strangers, opposite Nicole Kidman. She stars in the upcoming film, Breaking News in Yuba County, which will be released early next year.
