Nene Leakes To Star In New Scripted Series On Pop TV!!!
We all cheered for The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Nene Leakes when she landed her first scripted TV role on the now-canceled The New Normal. It didn’t last too long but to quote our girl, Nene, from her infamous fight with Claudia Jordan: Let’s not talk about what was…Let’s talk about what’s now!!!
AND the “Now” is that Leakes has been casted in a new scripted murder-mystery/comedy series called Ride or Die for PopTV. The series will follow the story of a spin-class instructor who is trying to solve the mystery of who killed her favorite student. And it sounds like Leakes will be all up and through the crime-solving.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote:
Ride or Die, from writer Matt McConkey (Heathers), the Gotham Group and Nomadic Pictures, has cast Marley Shelton (Rampage, Rise) and NeNe Leakes (Glee, The Real Housewives of Atlanta) in lead roles. Shelton will play Shauna, a former socialite turned spin instructor whose favorite student turns up dead. She makes it her mission to find the killer.
Leakes will play Glo, a chef and lifestyle guru who’s also a true-crime buff and is thrilled to share her expertise on the case.
I can already see that Nene is gonna be funny as hell in this!
Congrats, Nene! You are all about a coin, Chile!
