Whoopi Goldberg Sells Interracial Comedy Spec To ABC

Whoopi Goldberg and Ben Silverman have teamed up to sell an interracial comedy spec script to ABC titled Iman & Andy, which will follow two 20-something coworkers who work at an online magazine, who are happily secretly dating, until when their new editor-in-chief exposes them as a couple, and forces them to team up on a relationship advice blog.

The spec script is being written by Angela Ruhinda, and will be executive produced by Goldberg and Silverman, along with Tom LeonardisJimmy Fox, and Principato-Young Entertainment.

“I’m so excited we are doing this together. I think this is going to be fun and interesting television,” said Goldberg. 

Up next for Whoopi, an adaptation of Terry McMillan’s A Day Late and a Dollar Short for Lifetme. Her HBO documentary Whoopi Goldberg Presents Moms Mabley, made its debut on the network earlier this week.
