P-Valley, based on the similarly titled play “Pussy Valley” from showrunner/creator Hall, will take an unapologetic look at the lives of strip club dancers working in the Mississippi area known as the “Dirty Delta.” The official synopsis reads as follows:

Down deep in the Mississippi Delta lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find. This southern-fried, hour-long drama tells the kaleidoscopic story of a little-strip-club-that-could and the big characters who come through its doors—the hopeful, the lost, the broken, the ballers, the beautiful, and the damned. Trap music meets film noir in this lyrical and atmospheric series that dares to ask what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the boundaries of the Piggly Wiggly and the pawnshop.

The series, which was originally picked up for development in 2016, will be executive produced by Chernin Entertainment with the cast already including Brandee Evans (The Bobby Brown Story), Nicco Annan (This is Us), Shannon Thornton (Power) and J. Alphonse Nicholson (Chicago P.D.) and the pilot set to be directed by acclaimed music video director Karena Evans (“Garden” by SZA).

Hightown, written and executive produced by Cutter, will take an inside look at the opioid epidemic currently sweeping through the United States. The official synopsis reads as follows:

“Hightown” is a crime drama set amid the drug trade on Cape Cod, touched off when a body washes ashore and discovered by an irreverent National Marine Fisheries Service officer who is determined to help solve the murder even if the state cops want her nowhere near the case.

The series will also be executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (Top Gun: Maverick), Jonathan Littman (The Amazing Race) and KristieAnn Reed (Lucifer). Chicago Fire‘s Monica Raymund is set to star in the series, whose production is set to begin in March 2019.
