Gabrielle Union, Jemele Hill, and Kelley L. Carter are ready to make New Money for Showtime. According to Variety, the L.A.’s Finest star is developing the scripted half-hour comedy with Hill, who is currently a contributing writer for the Atlantic and host of the Spotify podcast Jemele Hill Is Unbothered, and Carter, a journalist at ESPN’s the Undefeated.

The series reportedly focuses on successful Black women currently enjoying the fruits of their 20-something struggles, only to be beset in their 30s by problems that come with, well, “new money,” which include “hangers-on, false friends, unwanted media attention, and greedy relatives,” not to mention negotiating “the treacherous world of dating.” Patrik-Ian Polk, writer for Being Mary Jane and P-Valley, has also joined the project to write and executive produce, as will presumably many others interested in making a ton of New Money.
