Dark dramedy series Redrum in development at NBC
The show hails from Good Girls creator Jenna Bans, director Nzingha Stewart and executive producer Carla Banks-Waddles
Though NBC cancelled Good Girls, it seems like the network is still in business with the show's creator and executive producer Jenna Bans. Bans, along with director Nzingha Stewart and another Good Girls executive producer Carla Banks-Waddles, is developing a dark dramedy series titled Redrum.
Stewart will write and direct the series, based on an original idea. Banks-Waddles will serve as the showrunner.
Redrum follows two best friends, Jess and Sadie, who host a podcast about New Orleans’ infamous serial killers. However, when they make fun of a wrong sociopath, people close to them start to turn up dead. the friends, who are grossly ill-equipped for this unfortunate circumstance, realize they have to do what the police haven’t: find the killer before they become the victims of their own story.
Stewart and Banks-Waddles will also executive produce the series. Bans will executive produce under her banner Minnesota Logging Company, along with the company's Head of Television Casey Kyber.
Stewart is known for directing episodes of Good Girls, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Black Monday, Little Fires Everywhere and the upcoming series Inventing Anna. She also helmed the Netflix movie Tall Girl.
