Bravo is developing an hour-long drama series about a black female mayor.
The series, titled Candy, hails from Ben Cory Jones, who currently serves as a writer on HBO’s Insecure and WGN America’s Underground.
The plot centers on the youngest and first African American female mayor as she navigates the treacherous political terrains of one of America’s most violent and poorest cities while balancing her marriage and an illicit affair. The city, the school system, a group of disenfranchised high schoolers and Candy are all in varying degrees of crisis, putting her and the city’s future in jeopardy. She will either become a player on the big stage, or die trying.
A writer on Insecure and Underground? Candy sounds like it could be a win!
