'Peeples' Writer, Director Tina Gordon Chism Developing Comedy Series For HBO

It was just announced that Tyler Perry’s Peeples writer and director, Tina Gordon Chism,
is currently developing a comedy project for HBO to be called Crushed.

According to THR, the projected series deals with an African-American family who
stumbles into a successful wine business in Napa. The fish-out-water story
follows the family’s unorthodox approach to wine making and their unique life
style.

Ms. Chism will executive produce along with Stephanie
Allain Bray
, with C. Deneen Brown co-producing.

No word yet as to casting, or when the series will
premiere; though one assumes it will be sometime next year.

We’ll be keeping tabs on the project of course.
