Boy, oh, boy, Luvvie Ajayi fans — do I have news for you.
Ajayi spoke at the #BlogHer17 Conference Friday in Orlando, Florida, and dropped some major spoilers about her upcoming show with Shondaland that will be based on her best-selling book, I’m Judging You.
“I personally developed the show with Shonda — with Shondaland. The only thing I can tell you right now is that the show is going to center around a character that is a composite of me. So basically, me on camera.”
Luckily, the host of the discussion, BlogHer co-founder and conference program chair, Elisa Camahort Page, was able to squeeze a few extra details out of our favorite entrepreneur.
“I will not be acting in it. That’s not my ministry. Somebody else will do the acting, but I am gonna be on the writing. I have an idea of who I want to play me. I already let Shonda know; we’re working on it.”
As much as I was hoping to see Ajayi star in her own show, I totally get it and trust that she will pick the absolute best actor for the role.
So when can we expect to see her new show? We’re still not quite sure.
“Cross your fingers… because the optioning means that Shondaland is trying to make sure it ends up on television,” Ajayi said. “It’s not guaranteed it’s gonna end up on television. If all goes well, it will end up on television, so hopefully this time next year, we’ll talking about a new TV show.”
Here’s hoping this new show gets up and running ASAP, because, honestly, if this show is even one-tenth as hilarious and well-done as her book, it will be a must-watch for all.
