We’ve seen Meagan Good more in the gym than we have on the big screen these days, but based on her newest acting gig, there’s a good reason for that. Good is going to have to pack on the muscle if she plans on kicking a– and taking names in the new Foxy Brown TV adaptation she is set to star in. A Foxy Brown show? You heard that correctly.
According to Deadline, Good will play the classic character from the 1974 blaxploitation film. The series will be executive produced by her husband, DeVon Franklin, and Tony Krantz. The series will be brought to us by MGM TV, and if given the green light, will stream on Hulu.
Malcolm Spellman (Empire co-executive producer) and Ben Watkins (Hand of God creator) are set to write the TV series, which Deadline calls a “reimagining of the 1974 movie and the larger-than-life Foxy Brown character.”
As for Good, aside from starring, she will also serve as a producer for the series, which is said to be a passion project for the actress. She celebrated the good news on Instagram:
This will be the third time she’s had a leading role on a series, but it’s her first time doing a streaming series. She was the star of the short-lived NBC drama Deception, the Fox show Minority Report, which was an adaptation of the film, and had a recurring role on the CBS series Code Black. Congratulations to the actress on her newest opportunity. You know we love some Foxy Brown, so it should be an entertaining series.
